"AirEye’s research team in collaboration [...] have found a vulnerability, dubbed SSID Stripping, which causes a network name – aka SSID – to appear differently in the device’s “List of Networks” than its actual network name."
"SSID Stripping bypasses these security controls since the device itself processes the network names as they actually are, not as they are displayed. Hence, the devices do not consider the rogue AP to have the same name as the legitimate network."
