Eavesdrop on a Bluetooth headset

SANS Institute author and senior instructor Joshua Wright demonstrates, and explains, the security vulnerability in this how-to. For more information, including step-by-step instructions on how you can replicate this hack yourself, take a look.

That gets darn technical, which I understood how to program more so I could try this. Anybody know a simple application that does this?

Oh no! Not a handful of codes a half a line long!

Why would you think forcing entry into a remote device wouldn't be "technical".

i'm sure somebody could make an app pretty easily if this is all just run from a bluetooth device, a nokia N series and some linux distro.

The drug deal behind his shoulder at 46 secs ftw!

anyone know the name of this linux work station?

He did not mention that in order to pair with a BT headset, you must first put the headset into discovery mode, usually by holding down certain buttons on the headset itself. How are you gonna do that to your target's device and still remain inconspicuous? That was obvious. Duh!!
