I think this bug is worse than comment #0 suggests.

The hotspot enabled by default with the generic wifi settings could result in a security breach.

See these STR from bug 918757:

1. Flash device with m-c Inari build
2. Run through FTU without selecting/changing any options
3. Pull down status bar panel and uncheck "Wifi" icon
4. Wait a few seconds, Internet sharing will come on with default insecure settings, hotspot is visible by scanning in the area from another device.

The disconnect flag should be put alone with the disable command.

Seeing as this bug busted the Brussels Summit Wi-fi, reckon we have a case for patching it to 1.2?

Hey Bhavana, could we please get the koi+ flag here, so that it will be uplifted ? It landed more than 2 weeks ago, and it has been asked nearly 1 month ago...

This is a _really_ bad issue.

When WiFi is enabled, internet sharing notification is off. When WiFi is disabled, internet sharing notification is on when internet sharing enabled.
