A new attack vector exposes almost every Bluetooth connected device (emergency)


Thank you for your prompt action. The new vector is dubbed “BlueBorne”, as it spread through the air (airborne) and attacks devices via Bluetooth.

BlueBorne allows attackers to take control of devices, access corporate data and networks, penetrate secure "Air-gapped" networks, and spread malware laterally to adjacent devices.

Spreading from device to device through the air also makes BlueBorne highly infectious.The BlueBorne attack vector has several qualities which can have a devastating effect when combined.
