Without being forced to (and I mean by it being forcibly disabled) what % of people who use bluetooth are actually going to switch it off? Most won't want to disable it on their phones as it auto-connects to their car, and a lot won't know how to disable bluetooth on their laptop/tablet without also disabling wifi.

I also wonder if IT/the business were to forcibly disable bluetooth for company phones could this turn into a WHS issue as it's actively preventing them from using hands free in the car?

Well, any/all of them. I was thinking along the lines of Nessus/OpenVAS type detection... Attack the BT devices with love and then find and fix them.

That OP article reeks of a regurgitated press release

Is this is just a PR exercise from this Armis mob?

Who decided to name it BlueBorne(TM) with its own logo?

Is this just a name given to the "package" of potential exploits they uncovered or is this a virus/malware package that actually exists right now?

Either way for me, 0fg, I never have BT on, and have found it painful and inadequate with everything I've ever tried to do with it, transferring files between devices or playing audio.

edit: read the Ars article
Seems Android and Linux only are vulnerable, Windows and iOS if unpatched
