Also phones are devices in which you use your voice to talk with other people, which is already terrifying even without the security flaws
They have a patch that would prevent it from happening. They won't merge it because "it should never happen".
But bugs exist in every piece of software. Software breaks frequently. The least you can do is when it breaks, make sure it breaks gracefully.
Dumping hundreds of megabytes of text into my system log is not considering handling things gracefully. It means my system log would be harder to navigate and read, it means my log will bloat faster than it should.
Also consider this: the data dumped into the log is contents from PDF files all over the system. That's not just ebooks! sensitive medical/financial documents, legal document, paychecks, and other types of documents you'd want to keep private would be dumped into the log. This means every time there's a problem and I need to post my log, I need to validate bits of my documents didn't find their way into the log. This means that on a multi-user system any user who has access to the system log would have access to everyone's PDF files.
This is not OK. And besides, if you have a bug in something making a query, you really don't need the full text of Discworld to debug it, right? So why not limit the output?
