    It seem some clever bad 'hackers' have found that you can 'brick' a PS4 running the latest firmware by sending in-game chat 'messages' to your PlayStation 4 console with certain 'characters' which will cause your PS4 to brick itself, forcing you to 'factory reset' it to un-brick, which means you end up losing all your PSN Games/DLC/Game Updates/Game Saves, forcing you to spend hours restoring it all.
