Armis exposes 8 new Bluetooth vulnerabilities
Cybersecurity firm Armis has spotted eight Bluetooth vulnerabilities, collectively called BlueBorne, which can allow hackers to remotely access to your phone data. Experts with the cybersecurity company also warned that the attack could provide hackers with access to computers as well as IoT devices.
They warned that the vulnerabilities are totally operational, and could be used to carry out a large series of transgressions, including remote code execution and Man-in-The-Middle attacks.
In a newly released statement, they said, “These vulnerabilities are fully operational, and can be successfully exploited, as demonstrated in our research. The BlueBorne attack vector can be used to conduct a large range of offenses, including remote code execution as well as Man-in-The-Middle attacks.”
Ralph Echemendia, chief executive of Seguru, added that BlueBorne affects nearly every device that consumers commonly use.
The security experts stressed that many more vulnerabilities could be discovered in a variety of platforms using Bluetooth.
