Gregory Vishnepolsky and Ben Seri from Armis Labs will hold a presentation about the exploitation of BlueBorne for Android and Windows devices including background on the research of BlueBorne as a whole.
BlueBorne is an attack vector by which hackers can leverage Bluetooth connections to penetrate and take complete control over targeted devices. BlueBorne affects ordinary computers, mobile phones, and the expanding realm of IoT devices. The attack does not require the targeted device to be paired to the attacker’s device or even to be set on discoverable mode. Armis Labs has identified eight zero-day vulnerabilities so far, which indicate the existence and potential of the attack vector. These vulnerabilities are fully operational and can be successfully exploited.
The BlueBorne attack vector can be used to conduct a large range of offenses, including remote code execution as well as Man-in-The-Middle attacks.
The results of Armis Labs’ research about BlueBorne was first posted online on 12th September.
