Billions of voice-activated Internet of Things devices may be subject to external attack due to BlueBorne vulnerabilities, Armis revealed on Wednesday. Hackers could exploit BlueBorne to mount an airborne attack, using Bluetooth to spread malware and access critical data, including sensitive personal information. More than 20 million Amazon Echo and Google Home digital assistant speakers could have been impacted by the flaws, but both Amazon and Google already have taken the matter in hand.

What best describes your video-calling preferences?
I almost always prefer video calls over voice calls.
I think video calls are very useful for some business purposes.
I enjoy video calls with friends and family, but not with business associates or strangers.
They are nice if planned in advance -- I don't like spontaneous video calls.
I find it difficult to speak naturally on video calls.
I feel video calls are a huge invasion of privacy.
I have never tried video calling, and I probably won't.
