Worries rise about blunting attacks that target networks
Armis has identified two chip-level vulnerabilities, which it has named BLEEDINGBBIT, impacting access points and potentially other unmanaged devices. These are vulnerabilities related to use of Bluetooth Low Energy chips from Texas Instruments. The vulnerabilities affect Cisco, Aruba and Meraki access points, permitting hackers to attack networks undetected, introduce malware, move where they want in networks or destroy network segmentation. Expect more attacks resulting from these vulnerabilities including disruption of patient care within healthcare organizations, Armis advises.
