Now a days most of devices getting problem named “Bug”. Do you know what is bug?
Let me give you proper introduction of bug.
What is Bug?
In computer technology, a bug is a coding error in a computer program.In IT, a bug refers to an error, fault or flaw in any computer program or a hardware system.A bug produces unexpected results or causes a system to behave unexpectedly. In short it is any behavior or result that a program or system gets but it was not designed to do.
History of Bug:
On September 9th, 1947, an error in the US Naval-operated Mark II computer was caused by a moth being trapped between two electrical relays. William Burke, the operator who found it, was so amused that he took the moth and placed it in a log-book with the annotation “First actual case of bug being found”.
It is not clear when the term “bug” was first used to denote faults in something. Thomas Edison, the 19th-century inventor, mentioned in a letter to an associate that bugs appear later in the invention process and that more time would be required on fixes prior to commercialization of the product.
- As per Research ,Bug is found in iOS.
A bug has been discovered in iOS that can disable an iPhone`s ability to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots if it attempts to initially connect to a hotspot with a specific name that breaks the function.Attempts to connect to other hotspots failed, with the issue continuing to manifest after changing the hotspot’s SSID and rebooting the iPhone, according to BleepingComputer
How Bugs Found in iOS:
A bug has been discovered in iOS that can disable an iPhone’s ability to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots if it attempts to initially connect to a hotspot with a specific name that breaks the function.
Security researcher Carl Schou gave a personal Wi-Fi hotspot a name comprising special characters — “%p%s%s%s%s%n”.On trying to connect to the hotspot, Schou discovered the iPhone simply couldn’t connect to it at all, and later discovered that it disabled Wi-Fi connectivity completely on the device, AppleInsider reported.
The issue was also confirmed by others testing out the same SSID name separately.Tests also point to it being a problem just with iPhones, as Android devices appear to connect to the unusually-named access point without issue.
Other researchers examining the phenomena believe it is an issue with input parsing, in which the percentage sign at the start may be misinterpreted by iOS as a string-format specifier, and the characters following may be a variable or a command rather than plain text.
How To Fix Bugs in iOS?
To fix the problem on affected iPhones, users have to reset their iOS network settings.In addition to the touch issues, Apple has also fixed problems with MMS messages and some audio problems.bu
