Turn Off Bluetooth: BlueBorne ZeroDays Disclosed (Cylance)

Cylance: Turn Off Bluetooth: BlueBorne ZeroDays Disclosed. “Last month, I wrote about Broadpwn. Broadpwn is an exploit which can be used to take over many smartphones and tablets, iPhones and Android devices alike. It targets Broadcom Wifi chipsets, which are used in mobile devices from a variety of OEMs including Apple and Samsung. The bright side is that it’s simply a vulnerability that was found by a security researcher, and updating to the latest versions of iOS and Android patches the vulnerability. That’s not the case for this Bluetooth exploit, however. Armis Labs discovered eight zero day vulnerabilities. That’s right – BlueBorne is a collection of vulnerabilities, many with patches that are still being developed.”
