In April 2017, The Automated Reporting Management Information System (ARMIS) contacted Microsoft, Apple, Samsung, and Linux to report eight zero-day vulnerabilities related to connections via Bluetooth, designated as Blueborne.
Blueborne endangers millions of unpatched devices by spreading through the air, across a wide variety of platforms: mobile, desktop, and IoT operating systems which includes Android, iOS, Windows, Linux; and all related devices that use these operating systems.
