Connected devices are cropping up everywhere, and so are the security issues.

Armis Security recently released details of a Bluetooth exploit, dubbed BlueBorne. Billions of mobile, desktop and IoT devices using Bluetooth now have a critical security flaw that users need to be aware of.

Due to the vulnerability, an attacker is able to gain control over your Bluetooth device if they are within range and have the hacking credentials. These type of attacks aren’t as simple as tricking the person into clicking on a link or opening a file.

All the major players have patched the vulnerability in recent updates, but be extra diligent with using Bluetooth in public places.
