Microsoft, the subject of more than a few vulnerability disclosures from Chocolate Factory researchers, alerted Google to the issue, which is down to a misconfiguration in the way the keys handle Bluetooth pairing protocols.
Google is recalling the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) version of its Titan Security Key, and is offering free replacements to owners. It allows a so-called Man in The Middle (MiTM) attack, in which someone could get between your Titan key and the device it's communicating with. Just take extra precautions, such as using your security key away from other people and immediately unpairing it after you sign-in to your Google account.
This flaw can enable an attacker who is within 30 feet of you while you're using the key to communicate with it or with the device it is paired to. The circumstances that would have to align include an attacker in close proximity (less than 30 feet or so), who is able to time their attack to the exact moment that you connect with your security key. After that, they could attempt to change their device to appear as a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse and potentially take actions on your device. To check whether your device needs to be replaced, look for a letter and number combo on the back of the key near the bottom. If it's marked T1 or T2, Google will replace it for free.
"Due to a misconfiguration in the Titan Security Keys' Bluetooth pairing protocols, it is possible for an attacker who is physically close to you at the moment you use your security key - within approximately 30 feet - to (a) communicate with your security key, or (b) communicate with the device to which your key is paired", it said. Security keys that use USB or Near Field Communication are unaffected.

The threat of having the key hijacked and the current incompatibility with the latest release of iOS are sure to generate further user resistance to using the BLE-based keys. However, the company recommended that users do not stop using the keys until they get a replacement, as they can provide enhanced security, compared to not using a security key after all. After you've used your key to sign into your Google Account on your device, immediately unpair it. Brand said that security keys continued to represent one of the most meaningful ways to protect accounts and advised that people continue to use the keys while waiting for a new one. "While Yubico previously initiated development of a BLE security key, and contributed to the BLE U2F standards work, we decided not to launch the product as it does not meet our standards for security, usability and durability". You will need to sign into your Google account when you access the site to claim your replacement. If you don't do that and own a phone that'll pick-up the June security patch next month, your phone will automatically unpair it.
