Another Day, Another Vulnerability

Mashable:

The vulnerability, known as BlueBorne, was discovered by security research firm Armis. The researchers were able to infiltrate a Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy phones, an LG Sports Watch, and a car audio system by attacking Bluetooth, according to the report. The researchers were able to remotely steal data from the devices and take control of their cameras.

The researchers also noted that the other devices are at risk, including Android, Microsoft, Samsung, and Linux products, and iPhones and iPads that haven’t been upgraded to iOS 10.

We can talk all day about the advantages and disadvantages of Apple products, but as long as they are at the top of the heap when it comes to privacy and security, all of the other arguments become moot.
