New Attack Vector Affecting Bluetooth Devices

15 September 2017

Researches from Armis Labs have identified a new attack vector, dubbed BlueBorne, that endangers mobile, desktop and IoT operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux. BlueBorne enables attackers to take control of devices, penetrate corporate networks and distribute malware via Bluetooth. Notably, the attack does not require pairing with the targeted device or setting it in discoverable mode.
