Bluetooth Vulnerability – Switch off Device’s Bluetooth when NOT in-use

 

Recently, a Bluetooth vulnerability – Blueborne, it was reported that could potentially expose millions of devices to remote attack. Blueborne allows attackers to gain access to your device (PC, mobile phone, IoT device etc.) via Bluetooth connection.

 

However, Blueborne can only target devices within range of the hackers, and only devices with Bluetooth turned on.

 

The simplest protection is to switch Bluetooth off when not in use.
