Beware "BlueBorne"

Quote:
Armis Labs revealed a new attack vector endangering major mobile, desktop, and IoT operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux, and the devices using them. The new vector is dubbed “BlueBorne”, as it spread through the air (airborne) and attacks devices via Bluetooth. Armis has also disclosed eight related zero-day vulnerabilities, four of which are classified as critical. 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. Armis reported these vulnerabilities to the responsible actors, and is working with them as patches are being identified and released.

Turn off Bluetooth unless you have received a patch and installed it. They have an app that allows you to check your Android device(s) for vulnerability.

RNG Troll Alert. Pathetic too.

The app that tests your Android device(s) is free, so people, take this seriously, in spite of RNG.

If you are using Bluetooth your device can be taken over. Patches are either available or are in the works, from Google, Microsoft and Linux.

A Coordinated Disclosure

Armis reached out to the following actors to ensure a safe, secure, and coordinated response to the vulnerabilities identified.

• Google – Contacted on April 19, 2017, after which details were shared. Released public security update and security bulletin on September 4th, 2017. Coordinated disclosure on September 12th, 2017.

• Microsoft – Contacted on April 19, 2017 after which details were shared. Updates were made on July 11. Public disclosure on September 12, 2017 as part of coordinated disclosure.

• Apple – Contacted on August 9, 2017. Apple had no vulnerability in its current versions.

• Samsung – Contact on three separate occasions in April, May, and June. No response was received back from any outreach.

• Linux – Contacted August 15 and 17, 2017. On September 5, 2017, we connected and provided the necessary information to the the Linux kernel security team and to the Linux distributions security contact list and conversations followed from there. Targeting updates for on or about September 12, 2017 for coordinated disclosure.
My note re: Apple. Note it says "current versions". If you are using an older version of OS X, or iOS, you probably have some vulnerability, and it is doubtful that Apple will provide a patch for older versions.
