Crashsafari website reboots iPhone and crashes browsers

There is a website online that crashes Safari and other browsers, including Firefox and Chrome as well. The website by itself is not malicious, but it can reboot your iPhone, overheat its processor and crash Safari on Mac, if opened.

How it works?

This website self-generates a text string in the URL address bar, which is too much for Safari to handle. This particular prank affects other browsers and different operating systems, no matter if Android or Windows. No reports on its effects on Linux so far, but since this is browser related, it should work the same way. Therefore avoid crashsafari.com at any cost, sine it wil only cause you headaches. Considering that this primarily affects Apple devices, it’s just a matter of time until the company releases a patch for this. Until then, beware.
