Another day, another iOS bug discovery. The stock Camera app on iOS 11 was recently updated to automatically detect QR codes and show link previews in case the QR code contains a URL. However, reports have surfaced online that suggest this feature has an apparent bug that can allow people to change the actual URL that is redirected on clicking the link shown in the notification preview.

A report by InfoSec details the new bug that involves creating an unsuspecting hostname such as facebook.com or google.com in the notification preview, while adding a different URL for when it redirects in Safari.
