The new vulnerability, discovered on the Android Bluetooth system, allows attackers to access users' private data without any restrictions. The vulnerability, discovered by the ERNW security company, is so dangerous that virtually anyone and everywhere can access the contents of your mobile phone without your knowledge and install malware in addition to stealing personal information. It is worth noting that Android Bluetooth vulnerability only exposes attackers to devices that use Android 8 and 9 and have not installed a February security update. As a result, if you are using a phone running Android 8 or 9 and have no February security update installed on the phone, it is strongly advised not to turn on the device's Bluetooth. This vulnerability gives attackers complete control over their mobile phones without the user's knowledge. The vulnerability has been fixed in Android OS version 10, and if the attackers try, Bluetooth will crash and prevent the attackers from accessing personal data. Of course, there are ways to prevent these attacks. For example, it is advisable to install your phone on Android 10 update if possible, or be sure to install a February security update. If none of the above are possible for you, it is best not to turn on Bluetooth in places where there are many people nearby, or if you have to, do not turn on the find by other device ability. To do this, just do not go into your phone's settings menu while searching for Bluetooth. Of course, some older phones may not have this option and will always be detected by other devices if Bluetooth is turned on. If you haven't received the relevant updates then, don't turn on Bluetooth. ERNW says it will release details of the vulnerability as soon as it is assured that all users have received security patches.
