Researcher Carl Shou has said in a tweet that if the iPhone is connected to a network named ‘%secretclub% power’, then the device will not be able to use Wi-Fi or other related features.
Bug appears in percentage symbol
It only recognizes the percentage symbol ‘%’ in some Wi-Fi networks. If once the iPhone is connected to the Wi-Fi on the iPhone as the ‘%p%s%s%s%s%n’ network, the WiFi cannot connect to the device and this persists even after rebooting the device. not connected. This system uses AirDrop networking features.
This % symbol is used in programming language. Which converts the variables into an output string.
Works in string format
In C, ‘%n’ means to save the given word in string format. The Wi-Fi subsystem sends the SSID of the Wi-Fi network name to an internal library, which works in string format. Which causes arbitrary memory writes and buffer overflows.

In case of such a problem, users should reset their iOS network settings. The settings of the router should be changed. Keep the password secure.
