A vulnerability found in Bluetooth Secure Connections Pairing and Secure Simple Pairing can expose paired devices to man-in-the-middle attacks. You'd need to be within wireless range to exploit the vulnerability, but that's possible for a war driver or even an evil maid.
Speaking of evil maid attacks, where someone with physical access to an unattended machine compromises it, they've been regarded as interesting outliers, less common than other forms of attack, perhaps sufficiently time-consuming and complex to be regarded as relatively unlikely. Security firm Eclypsium has posted a demonstration video, however, that shows how a firmware backdoor could be installed in a laptop in under five minutes, which would leave the evil maids plenty of time to make the bed, empty the trash, and pocket the tip.
Trend Micro reports a spike in what appear to be Satori infestations that are using open Android Debug Bridge (ADB) ports to install themselves.
Microsoft's July patches include a patch of a patch—a zero-day fix made in May to a VBScript engine bug open to exploitation by Internet Explorer turned out not to fix things at all. But fixed now.
Security experts continue to expect renewed Russian attention to electrical power grids in the UK and the US, the period of relative restraint coinciding with the World Cup having ended when France edged Croatia.
Singapore continues to take the measure of the SingHealth breach. The attackers seemed principally interested in the Prime Minister's records, but they scooped up millions of others', too.
