An exploit on telgram trought an image


I was reading of an exploit (now fixed) on telegram in which if you sent a corrupted jpeg you could virtually enter in that account

My question is: A jep is a bunch of bit in which you can’t store commands or functions, so how could the exploit go trought only using a jpeg?
