Hackers manipulate BLURtooth liability

Researchers say that all devices using Bluetooth version 5.0 and 4.0 are liable to the attacks. No official patches are available for the end-users currently. Organizations that created the Bluetooth tech have published measures on how users and vendors can prevent fresh attacks on Bluetooth compatible devices. The vulnerability was detected in the Cross-Transport Key Derivation (CKTD) element, a Bluetooth standard. The liability was tagged as BLURtooth. The compromised part is used to set up authentication keys and negotiating while pairing two Bluetooth-compatible devices.

Attackers can manipulate the liability and overwrite all Bluetooth authentication keys present on the system, or grant a hacker access to different Bluetooth-compatible apps/services available on the same system.
