Haddouche has posted about this information on gitHub. The information includes that source code of the bug which is said to be having of few lines of CSS and HTML. All the other users have tested the webpage bug on macOS as well as on Windows 7 in which they reported that the Safari app got frozen first then it crashed their devices.

As per Haddouche, it said that anything which renders HTML on iOS is now affected. This means that you will be affected by the bug if someone will send you the link which is via the social media or email or if you can visit a webpage that includes the code.

This code is said to be the short snippet of code which can hide on almost any webpage. It will be restarting the iPhone by enabling the fail-safe that is built on iOS. The code that is posted here is available for all the resources which result in a Kernel Panic.
