    so a "friend" of mine sent me the whatsapp video, which *** up my phone. After hard-restarting it, it seems fine, but now im afraid that this was a secret virus and im paranoid somehow :s
    So my question to a ios security pro:
    Is there a possibility that this video is indeed a "secret virus"? :/
    Thanks

    There are no known viruses for iOS 10 out there. There might be things that crash some apps or the phone or something like that, but that's about it.

    It's not a virus, it's a corrupted video and iOS 10 doesn't know how to handle it and something else about a memory leak. There's a video by EverythingApplePro on YouTube about this and he explains it better than I do.
