Security firm Armis has found a new vulnerability that takes advantage of our proclivity for leaving Bluetooth on always for the many devices we use on a daily basis.  By constantly scanning for devices with Bluetooth on the hack simply finds a device, connects to it, and in as little as 10 seconds takes control of your device and can even steal data from it.  Even if it wasn’t connected to anything, to begin with.  Vulnerable devices range from a host of Android devices to iOS 10 iPads and iPhones.  So it’s time to patch that device!
