Security firm report says GPS and Bluetooth contract tracing subject to hacking

In a report released Thursday, cybersecurity firm Check Point outlined privacy risks of contact tracing apps. They raised concerns for methods using either Bluetooth and GPS approaches. Tech firms have promoted Bluetooth as more secure since it does not track location but Check Point noted hackers can use it to track people. The UK rolled out a Bluetooth based app earlier this month.
