Bluetooth Mess: Almost Everything Affected

Filed under
Security
  • ​Linux gets blasted by BlueBorne too

    he security company Armis has revealed eight separate Bluetooth wireless protocol flaws known collectively as BlueBorne. This new nasty set of vulnerabilities have the potential to wreak havoc on iPhones, Android devices, Windows PC, and, oh yes, Linux desktops and server, as well.

    While BlueBorne requires a Bluetooth connection to spread, once the security holes are exploited, a single infected device could infect numerous devices and computers in seconds. Attacks made with BlueBorne are silent, avoid activating most security measures, and require nothing from new victims except that their devices have Bluetooth on.

  • Linux Impacted By Information Leak & Remote Code Execution Via Bluetooth

    Armis Labs has gone public today with "Bluebourne", an IoT-focused attack vector via Bluetooth. This Bluetooth attack does not require the targeted device to even be paired with the attacker or on discoverable mode, making it more frightening.

  • The IoT Attack Vector “BlueBorne” Exposes Almost Every Connected Device

    Armis Labs revealed a new attack vector endangering major mobile, desktop, and IoT operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux, and the devices using them.
