Two chip vulnerabilities were discovered that have the potential to render millions of enterprise security systems powerless. These vulnerabilities allow attackers to take over the chip and spread malicious software throughout the network. They affected routers from Cisco, Aruba, and Meraki. The good news is the chipmaker, along with other manufacturers provided a patch in fast order. This enabled the affected router vendors to start applying them before the issue was made public. The following article list the chip sets with the vulnerability flaws as well as the APs that are at risk. 

Bleedingbit is a set of two new zero-day vulnerabilities which have the potential to expose enterprise firms to remote code execution attacks worldwide.

On Thursday, researchers from enterprise security firm Armis revealed the bugs, which together impact Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) chips used in millions of Cisco, Meraki, and Aruba wireless access points (APs).

Developed by Texas Instruments (TI), the vulnerable BLE chips are used by roughly 70 to 80 percent of business wireless access points today by way of Cisco, Meraki and Aruba products.
