Bluetooth Reconnection Flaw Could Lead to Spoofing Attacks

Professors Xu, Bianchi, Tian and researchers at Purdue Computer Science recently discovered a vulnerability that affects many IoT devices running Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The research centers around the routine reconnection process of BLE devices. The researchers conclude that their discovery implies that this vulnerability can potentially affect more than 1 billion BLE devices and 16,000 BLE apps.
