Hello MiFriends

Envision a virus that can contaminate your phone since youhave it turned on. It can enable hackers to take control of your phone, takepictures and view or share photographs, recordings, contacts and messages — andthe hackers can do everything without you regularly knowing.



It's known as a "BlueBorne" attack, and the virusutilizes Bluetooth to get to your phone. Any gadget on which you utilizeBluetooth, including voice-activated speakers, could be at risk.

Since it keeps running on Bluetooth, the attack must bepropelled inside around 30 feet of the gadget.
Phones with older operating systems are most susceptible —as per Ken Colburn with Data Doctors, Apple has effectively settled the issueon iPhones with iOS 10 or higher. In the event that your iPhone is working onan older OS, you'll have to update your phone in "settings".

For android smartphones, there is a free application by theorganization that found the virus, Armis labs. It will let you know whetheryour device is vulnerable or safe.

Most organizations have made a fix, or a fix to avoid theissues, and you may have that fix if your telephone gets updates.
