Interestingly, The company says that it has fixed the BlueBorne Vulnerability which was recently discovered. The BlueBorne vulnerability allows hackers to gain unauthorized access to unpatched Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux devices with the help of Bluetooth. In this, the attacker doesn’t even have to pair with the device to gain access to it making this extremely dangerous.

The company has stated that this is an individual patch and has to yet be fixed by Google in Android. They also stated that some BlueBorne vulnerability scanners might not be able to detect the patch as it is an independent patch.
