The Guys at Joy of Tech Rock
Soon their will be a pilgrinage to this. Hint: a huge middle easten attraction
This is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want one!
Now if they could make one with EV-DO
The BlueSniper Bluetooth sniffing and hacking “sniper rifle” is truly the Bluetooth hacker’s Bluetooth hack. Equipped with a yagi antenna, and powered by a little bitty Gumstix motherboard, the BlueSniper can detect vulnerable Bluetooth devices up to a kilometer away. A Bluejacker’s paradise.
In addition, the BlueSniper, developed by Los Angeles think-tank Flexilis, will list the services of all open devices it finds, making the devices vulnerable to all manner of exploitation.
According to Flexilis’ John Hering, “With multiple ‘guns’ it would be possible to track a single Bluetooth device as the person walked around. In less than a few minutes, 20 devices were detected all at distances over a half mile away.”
What’s more, all of this sniped data is displayed on the attached laptop, and can be stored for future reference.
Within what seemed like minutes of the BlueSniper’s debut, webpages sprang up with instructions on how to build your own BlueSniper.
Still, not something which Aunty would recommend, as the similarity in appearance to a real sniper rifle is striking, for obvious reasons, and the authorities might tend to ask questions later.
I should Know I was accused once for hacking someones cellphone and using the EV-DO connection to connect to the internet using bluetooth. Even thought this was a cover up for their own web surfing. The Phone company even said it was crap!
Well Here is the Article!
I quote this from Engadget Engadget Rocks!!!
No disrespect towards the fine police of the United Kingdom or their Sherlock Holmsian skills, but we’re mighty skeptical of a recent warning by the Cambridgeshire division that thieves are using their cellphones to locate and steal Bluetooth-enabled laptops from the “boots” of cars. So far all of the evidence concerning this new high-tech modus operandi seems to be anecdotal, as police in Royston are also claiming that a recent a spate of laptop thefts can be attributed to Bluetooth-sniffing crooks, but neither department is reporting how they came to these conclusions. Still, it’s probably not a bad idea to shutdown your machine instead of putting it sleep when storing it in the car, toggle your Bluetooth setting to “undiscoverable,” or just bring the damn thing along if you’re going to be away from your ride for awhile.

This is crap!! I say this again
