Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2021-01-21 08:03:05 UTC
A vulnerability was found in Linux Kernel, where Passkey Entry protocol used in Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), Secure Connections (SC) and LE Secure Connections (LESC) of the Bluetooth Core Specification is vulnerable to an impersonation attack where an active attacker can impersonate the initiating device without any previous knowledge.

Comment 6 Rohit Keshri 2021-05-12 19:00:00 UTC
Mitigation:

Devices should not accept their own public key from a peer during a pairing session. The pairing procedure should be terminated with a failure status if this occurs.
