- It is possible to get stuck chat app WhatsApp and collapse by someone sending a message with 4000's emoji. This was discovered by security researcher Indrajeet Bhuyan.

Both the mobile version and the web version croak is received as such fatal emoji. The conversation in which the message is, it can not be opened and must be removed completely.

Incidentally, it seems the iOS version of WhatsApp be effective against the deadly emoji appje, although the application hanging a bit when loading it. On most Android phones the message seems to cause a crash.

Also previously surfaced already a bug where sending a long message up also led to a crash. This WhatsApp put a character limit, but this seems to count emoji's not too bad.
