Latest Bluetooth vulnerability sounds kind of bad Posted by Mike on Thursday, June 16th, 2005 @ 05:43 pm [News]
You probably heard the technical details about the latest
Bluetooth vulnerability. It's based on exploiting a
weakness in the Bluetooth spec between paired devices, therefore affecting all Bluetooth phones using the current spec.
The Wall Street Journal has a story today about the exploit and what it means to the 10% of cellphone users who have
Bluetooth-enabled devices. And it appears that the exploit is not too hard to pull off, "Using their research, security
experts said, a device capable of tapping into Bluetooth gear could be built for about $2,000."
$2000 eh? Looks like I found a new Bluetooth project.
Thanks Mike! I am really digging your wifi-toys.com site. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone would find a vulnerability with Bluetooth. Sigh.. keep us informed on these latest developements. I am off to your archives for what I aml sure to be a treat.
