for the first, I'm not really someone who called a "hacker", but I think it should be good to share this Information with all of you.
Today I installed Plex (Media Server) on my PC to stream Movies and Animes on my Wii U.
All Videos works fine, but one of them crash my Wii U.
I thought: "Can I replicate this crash?" and "is it exploitable?"
If I try this video on a other PC, it works, but the Wii U always crash on it.
I'm not able to get back to the WiiU-Menü again. I have to hardreset my Wii U.
I uploaded a Video to show you this crash.
What do you think? Is it exploitable?
EDIT: to add in further, it gives the white screen, and if you leave it, the screen turns black, so it yields very similar results to the original browser exploit.
Tried with the Current Firmware: 5.1.2E & 5.1.2U
After some time, I'll get some glitchy thing on the Wii U Gamepad.

Heres a Video that shows you that it works on PC, but it crashes on Wii U
And yea, if you want to replicate this crash, you should try it with the file I used.
Because it's an Anime and it's licensed somewhere, I cannot upload it by myself.
But you can download it from the subgroup who subbed it.
The Original Filename: [RisingSun]_Spice_and_Wolf_-_01_(ger.sub)(720p)[7B9219C3].mkv
After you downloaded it, install PLEX on your PC, place the video into the library and open it on your WiiU
