New Set of Bluetooth Vulnerabilities Endangering Every Connected Device

Discussion created by Daniel Dor Employee on Sep 13, 2017

The IoT cybersecurity firm, Armis, has revealed eight vulnerabilities in the implementation of Bluetooth in several operating systems, including Android, Windows, Linux, and iOS, successful exploitation of which could allow hackers to take complete control of a device. Indeed, these are the most severe vulnerabilities found in Bluetooth in recent years and are worrying due to their ability to be spread over an air interface. They have been termed ‘The BlueBorne Vulnerabilities’.

Check Point SandBlast Mobile can protect mobile devices from this threat, both on iOS and Android, by helping to verify that mobile devices on your network are in compliance with the latest OS versions and security patches.
