Have an iPhone? Here’s How to Stop the Text Hack


It has come to light recently that there is a text message hack that can shut down any iOS device and there is seemly nothing that you can do about it.  Now Apple has released a work around until they can figure out a way to patch this hole in the software.

Here's what Apple suggests you do....

  • ask Siri to read unread messages.
  • use Siri to reply to the malicious message
  • Once you reply, you will be able to open Messages again.
  • go to Messages and swipe left to delete the entire thread. Or, you can long press on the malicious message, click on "More" and select delete.

There is a patch coming "shortly" put hopefully this helps for now.
