CoreText Bug Crashes OS X And iOS Apps

I wonder how something like this happens in the first place but, more importantly, why it hasn't been fixed yet. confused

The bug, found in the CoreText framework Apple uses in iOS and OS X, was apparently mentioned on Twitter as far back as February but recently gained attention among the coding and hacking communities. Apple so far has not acknowledged the issue or offered a fix, though researchers claim that while it affects prior versions of OS X and iOS, the latest developer previews of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 are unaffected.
