Taking a Shot at Bluetooth Security

Maybe it’s just because I live, almost literally, in the shadow of what’s come to be known as the Sniper Home Depot here in Arlington, but I don’t find anything that looks (and is used) like a sniper rifle to be very funny. And, I wouldn’t want to be the guy standing on a rooftop around the Metro area aiming this thing into anybody’s window. That said, the “BlueSniper” project found on Tom’s Networking does say a lot about the venerabilities of Bluetooth wireless security, and how, with a few hundred bucks, you can build a device that sniffs out other people’s insecure Bluetooth hardware. Just don’t make it look like a freakin’ gun!
