Headaches for Orange customers in France and Spain for the holidays. In a report published Thursday , security firm Armis said two flaws it found in Bluetooth Low Energy chips manufactured by Texas Instruments can be used to hack the APs that embed them. Among other things, TI said that it released a software update earlier this year that patched the CVE The fix is available in version 8. Refer the picture, I enable these functions.

Once the AP inside the network is infected, physical proximity would no longer be required.

I have this problem too. Scanning is disabled by default for all affected products, and the BLE bluerooth is disabled by default on the affected Aironet devices.

New BLEEDINGBIT Vulnerabilities Affect Widely-Used Bluetooth Chips

Bljetooth here, the access point is the unmanaged device. CVE is the result of an over-the-air firmware blietooth feature that TI built into its chips so device makers can more easily update firmware while developing their products. CenturyLink outage takes down several emergency services across the US Downtime caused by network issue affecting 15 of CenturyLink’s data centers.

While BLE is useful for cross-platform support between IoT and mobile devices running a range of operating systems, Armis says the new standard has opened devices up to a “new range of chip-based vulnerabilities, endangering the integrity of the networks they serve.


Attacks can bluerooth send multiple benign BLE broadcast messages, called “advertising packets,” which are stored on the memory of the vulnerable chip. With the arionet radio xironet the AP you can constantly monitor the region and report back to a backend system that can share more comprehensive information on what’s happening in your facilities.

The vulnerability affecting Cisco and Meraki gear is a combination of heap overflow and overflow over static variables, either of which can be used to corrupt chip memory and execute malicious code. The attacker now has the ability to backdoor the chip and, from there, attack the main processor of the AP.

Common Bluetooth chip flaw strikes Cisco and Aruba wi-fi gear

Officials said the hacker made off with the personal information of overstudent and staff. Cisco has documentation about the vulnerabilities herehereand here. Users report losing Bitcoin in clever hack of Electrum wallets.

Cisco is not aware of any malicious use of the vulnerability. Over 19, Orange modems are leaking WiFi credentials.

Researcher publishes proof-of-concept code for creating Facebook worm. According to The Wall Bluegooth Journalit was carried out, at least in part, by hackers who used a simple telescope-shaped antenna and a laptop to intercept data flowing through a Wi-Fi network used at a Marshalls discount clothing store near St. In other words you pass by this AP I can flash some info on your phone.


Cisco, Meraki, and Aruba have prepared patches to resolve Bleedingbit. On another level, however, a tremendous amount of work is required to exploit these vulnerabilities in a way that gives attackers the control they ultimately want. How to discover and destroy spyware on your Bluebourne permits account hijacking and data theft in the worst cases, and in bluerooth same manner as Bleedingbit, cannot be stopped through traditional antivirus solutions.

An Aruba representative said the company issued a patch for the vulnerability on October While the data was encrypted using the WEP protocol, the remote hackers needed only an hour or so to crack the key.

Reporter Help us understand bluetootu problem. In September, Armis said that over two billion devices remain exposed and unpatched. The resources to recreate this attack are really high. In a second stage, the AP receives an overflow packet in the form of an altered advertising packet that has a specific bit turned on.
