iOS 11.2.5 is no more than a bug fix release and does not bring anything new to the table in the features department.

To try to see if the fixes that Apple incorporated into iOS 11.2.2 to guard against these exploits really did crash the performance of the A8 chip, I searched for results of iPhone 6/6 Plus devices running iOS 11.2.2.

Masri had posted a link to the code on programming site GitHub, saying: "I made my point".

chaiOS was first uncovered by Abraham Masri, who tweeted about the bug.

On a Mac, the bug also slows the Safari web browser down and drains battery levels. "My intention is not to do bad things". It's just an html file.@Github always hosted jailbreaks (even.ipa files) that might've included malware. Masri previously reported the issue to Apple and claims he released it publicly to "get Apple's attention".
