Billions of devices imperiled by new clickless Bluetooth attack (ars technica)

By corbet Ars technica reports
on a set of just-disclosed Bluetooth vulnerabilities
in multiple
operating systems.
BlueBorne, as the researchers have dubbed their attack, is notable for its unusual reach and effectiveness. Virtually any Android, Linux, or Windows device that hasn’t been recently patched and has Bluetooth turned on can be compromised by an attacking device within 32 feet. It doesn’t require device users to click on any links, connect to a rogue Bluetooth device, or take any other action, short of leaving Bluetooth on.
