'No iOS Zone' Wi-Fi zero-day bug forces iPhones, iPads to crash and burn

2015/04/22

The Register - (International) Security researchers from Skycure discovered a zero-day denial-of-service (DoS) secure sockets-layer (SSL) vulnerability in Apple's iOS 8 called "No iOS Zone" that attackers can exploit to create a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot that forces users to connect, and manipulates traffic to cause apps and the operating system (OS) on connected iOS devices to crash, even in offline mode.
