Avoid this Wi-Fi hotspot — or your iPhone's wireless functionality will break

A bug in Apple’s iOS operating system is causing iPhones to completely lose their wireless functionality after connecting to a Wi-Fi hotspot that uses a specific name.

The bug was discovered by Carl Schou from Secret Club — a platform where technical experts share information about system exploits, game hacking, and system emulations.

Schou said after joining his personal Wi-Fi with the SSID “%p%s%s%s%s%n”, his iPhone permanently disabled its Wi-Fi functionality.

Why would a programmer even put something like that in the code? Hope it's not the same guy that programs the strength of the x-ray machine.
