The security researchers at Skyure have discovered a bug that allows the creation of a phone hack that they're calling the "No iOS Zone." The malicious phone hack is specific to Apple devices, causing them to crash and reboot repeatedly when connected to a Wi-Fi network using a special SSL certificate.

As an Apple user, even if you know that this hack is taking place over a Wi-Fi network disruptive hack, it's impossible to recover after the first attack. Until Apple releases a fix for the issue, the only solution for iOS users is to leave the affected area immediately. Skyure worries about the implications of this hack on larger areas, such as the mayhem that could be caused at airports and utility plants.
