WhatsApp Business for Android will have 'Chat Filters' soon

The malicious message was being spread with a series of emoji including a black dot, which has led to it being referred to as the "black dot" bug, but the real cause is similar to the WhatsApp bug reported earlier.

In a demo video, EverythingApplePro demonstrated how the bug, which he refers to as a "prank", works in real time. In the present day, a user who receives videos or images from Facebook, Instagram or any such app would be redirected to these apps to view the content.

The "Black Dot" bug as it is being called has been found affecting iPhones and iPads running iOS 11.3 and iOS 11.4 beta and it is also possible the bug may affect Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac as well.

He also spent most of the night trying to lock down Rockets superstar James Harden and had marginal success in his efforts. From the paltry four minutes he got Friday night, I think D'Antoni should bump it up to 15 minutes for tonight's game.

While the suspicious message is identifiable by the black dot, this isn't actually what is causing devices to crash. What's the fix? Until Apple releases new firmware to address the root cause, you just need to find a way to get out of the messages detail screen.

iOS messages with the black dot emoji are followed by thousands of unique Unicode characters that are invisible and flood your phones' CPU until the messenger app freezes. The message appears to be quite harmless but it comprises of a string of hidden characters. So let's dive in to see some more details on the bug and how you can fix it if you have been affected by it. You simply press and hold on the Messages icon, tap "New Message" and you can finally access your messages without the entire app crashing. In case you force to close the iMessage app and then again go back, then also then app will be frozen. One of the option is to try force-quitting the Messages app and the use 3D Touch to open a New Message pane.

The device that the Unicode string is present on can not render it properly which leads to system crashes.
