    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
