iOS 8.1.3 / 8.2 Kernel Panic

Earlier last month, I wrote a short post about a possible iOS 8.1.3 / 8.2 kernel vulnerability. Turns out to be nothing exploitable, just an issue where memory is low, causing the kernel to continuously allocate memory until nothing is left, which then triggers the kernel panic. It was no longer possible to replicate the crash on the latest iOS 8.3, so I guess the bug was fixed by Apple Security when I reported it. Below is the video showing how the kernel panic can be replicated.
