Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS / 17.04 : bluez vulnerability (USN-3413-1) (BlueBorne)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 103187


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


It was discovered that an information disclosure vulnerability existed in the Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) implementation in BlueZ. A physically proximate unauthenticated attacker could use this to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2017-1000250).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected bluez and / or libbluetooth3 packages.
