The specially-engineered link is created to exploit a relatively new feature within the Messages app; the ability to preview web URLs within the chat.
Masri admitted that he posted the link to get Apple's attention on the serious matter. This unfortunate effect is the outcome of the app preloading the page with the code that causes the issue, crashing the app before you can even click the link.
