The only reason people choose iOS among any other mobile operating systems is its relative security and stability.iOS is generally considered to be secure,but a recently-discovered bug that disables the Messages app reveals that not even Apple’s mobile operating system is free from vulnerabilities.This iMessage bug is discovered by software developer vincedes3, is pretty simple but too malicious.It work on iOS 8 to iOS 10.2.1 b2 (latest version now).Apple iPhone users are worried and they are searching for 'how to block messages on iPhones' and 'how to delete messages on iPhone'

What is bug that crashes your messages on iPhone?

The exploit,involves a complex vCard, which is a transferable Address Book contact.Whereas typical vCards feature 200-300 lines of code, the developer’s vCard reportedly includes 14,281. As a result, when Messages tries to open the vCard, the app crashes.A bug in Apple's iOS won't allow the iMessage app to move past this huge file.

How this iPhone Message crash works.

When you click the vCard received, iOS want to read the text, the text in the file is very complicated for the system and cause a CPU average: the app freeze. You close the app, want to reopen but iOS want to reload the previous message but can’t because it’s the vcf file.
This video from vincedes3 will explain it better.

These crashes are not a one-time event, unfortunately — they happen every time you open Messages, since the app tries to open the most recent message. As such, restarting the phone or the app will not work, since the cycle will repeat itself.
