Wireless access points from multiple vendors are potentially at risk thanks to a set of new Bluetooth flaws known as Bleedingbit. Bleedingbit was publicly announced by IoT security firm Armis on Nov. 1; it impacts Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chips made by Texas Instruments (TI) that are used in Cisco, Meraki and Aruba wireless access points. According to Armis, the impacted vendors were all contacted in advance of the disclosure so that patches could be made available.
