Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) released 16 new security vulnerabilities, with the codename BrakTooth (https://www.braktooth.com), affecting a wide range of Bluetooth classic (BR/EDR) implementations. The report, done in collaboration with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), was led by Assistant Professor Sudipta Chattopadhyay (https://sudiptac.bitbucket.io/) from SUTD’s ASSET (Automated Systems SEcuriTy) Research Group (https://asset-group.github.io/). The details of the news can be found on SUTD website: https://www.sutd.edu.sg/Research/Research-News/2021/9/bluetooth-security-vulnerabilities-braktooth

The above discovery has got some excellent coverage and response worldwide, which the research group believe is a breakthrough from the earlier SweynTooth discovery (https://istd.sutd.edu.sg/research/highlights/pushing-the-state-of-the-art-for-over-the-air-fuzzing/).
