Sony Playstation 4 Crashes from Messages with Symbols, Fix the Problem

Report: PS4 Messaging Bug is Bricking Consoles

It important to note that the bug affects only the account that received the message, so if you have other accounts set up, you can use them to restore the damaged one without losing your data.

"There is a new glitch that basically bricks your console and forces you to factory reset it".

According to reports on Reddit, some gamers playing online multiplayer games sent a crushing message the members of the opposing team, causing their consoles to lock up in the session. One suggestion is to download the PS Messages app onto your smart device of choice and delete the offending message from there.

Of course, if you select "Friends Only" you are still open to attack from anyone in your friends list, but hopefully that doesn't include any idiots. Even deleting the message from the mobile app doesn't work.

Got a new message notification on PS4? Huntstark writes, "It happened to me during Rainbow Six: Siege". We all have had to factory reset. You can stop it happening to your PS4, though, with a quick settings change. That way, you won't accidentally trigger the bug, in case you're one of the potentially affected users. Both should prevent unsafe messages from reaching you.

After the console crashes, users then "have to either rebuild the database in Safe Mode or factory reset the system". Sharing a tweet that responded to a user questioning if Sony was aware of the issue, the support Twitter account responded to say that the issue is being investigated while providing a solution for the problem.

The sad part is that you can not receive the message by accident, so irresponsible gamers are purposely sending them with the sole aim to do harm.
