Fitbit Flex Vulnerability
Working out after eating all of your Halloween candy might have a downside. At the Hack.Lu conference in October, researcher Axelle Apvrille of Fortinet revealed a vulnerability in popular fitness tracking device Fitbit Flex. The sensor vulnerability allows the device to be hacked through its Bluetooth radio feature, allowing attackers to potentially deliver code or malware to a computer. Fitbit said at the time that it doesn't believe the security flaw to be accurate, but welcomed input from security researchers.
