Not so, the release notes state specifically that it's to resolve this issue.

However if she's up to date and the issue is not resolved, then she'll need to restore her iPhone.

What you and your sister may have heard about is that one (and only one) specific Telugu Indian character can crash an app in iOS when received. That problem has been fixed in the latest iOS 11.2.6 update. Do you correspond in Telegu with your sister? If so then make sure all of you and your sister’s Apple devices have the latest updates.
