Questions are being raised again about the security of Bluetooth after researchers uncovered another flaw that could potentially compromise billions of devices.
Armis published details of the Bluetooth vulnerability it is calling ‘Blueborne’. The attack disguises itself as a Bluetooth device and exploits a weaknesses in the protocol to deploy malicious code.
“The BlueBorne attack vector requires no user interaction, is compatible to all software versions, and does not require any preconditions or configurations aside of the Bluetooth being active,” warned the researchers. “Unlike the common misconception, Bluetooth enabled devices are constantly
