A Bluetooth vulnerability could give hackers your location

Your Fitbit and other Bluetooth gadgets could be giving away your location data.

In the wrong hands, that information could be used for stalking or abuse . That's especially concerning given that basically everyone is carrying around a Bluetooth device.
