As exploit developers will know, fuzzing and crashing an application is an integral part of exploiting an application. Whilst this WhatsApp bug may “only” crash the App, maybe it can be be further developed into a full exploit of the underlying platform.

This one is funny, as it allows people to crash other people’s whatsapp applications by just sending enough smileys 🙂 Very Merry Christmas everyone and a happy new year and don’t send your friends too many smileys with your christmas wishes 🙂
