"No iOS Zone" vulnerability in iOS 8 forces iPhones and iPads to crash
The malicious hotspot uses the Wi-Fi connection to manipulate SSL certificates sent to iOS handsets, forcing a denial-of-service which causes apps and iOS to crash. Speaking at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, Skycure's Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit said that they have yet to see the "No iOS Zone" in the wild, but predict that it could happen in the future. Skycure is a mobile security company, and they have produced videos showing the DoS bug in action.
Both Sharabani and Amit said that they are talking to Apple about fixing the vulnerability. The pair praised he company for its quick response in working on a fix.
