TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA/WTNH) — Apple devices are getting infected by an issue called a “text bomb” for the second time in 2018. This time, the iOS 11.2.5 has a major flaw caused by a Unicode symbol, which is a character that visually represents text or a letter in another language. But, the text is actually a virus.
