Bluetooth Bugs Allow Impersonation Attacks on Legions of Devices
#2
Quote:Researchers at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne have published details about a new Bluetooth vulnerability that affects billions of mobile devices and wearables and allows a clever attacker to pose as a remotely paired device.
 
The attack method, dubbed Bluetooth Impersonation Attacks or (BIAS), is related to Bluetooth Classic which supports two types of wireless data transfer between devices: Basic Rate (BR) and Enhanced Data Rate (EDR).
 
The academics explain "the Bluetooth specification contains vulnerabilities enabling to perform impersonation attacks during secure connection establishment. [...] Such vulnerabilities include the lack of mandatory mutual authentication, overly permissive role switching, and an authentication procedure downgrade."
