Please refer to remote-exploit.org , as it has a flash demo of hacking
Bluetooth devices.  The Auditor and Whax live linux distros also are full of
nice Bluetooth hacking tools

Subject: Bluetooth Security

Hello everyone,
 
New guy here.
 
 
My concern is Bluetooth security.

My company is looking to purchase phones for everyone.
 
Since most cell phone companies wont admit there is a problem, I am not
finding alot of info on counter measures for bluetooth hacking in any form.
Other than the obvious, have it turned off by default. ;)
 
My question is:
 
 
Are their "specific" bluetooth security features I should look for?
 
I plan to ask for phones with the feature disabled by default.
 
How far can I go with it?
 
 
 
Thanks,  
 
 
New Guy
