Attacking computers over Bluetooth
From: Chris Byrd <cbyrd01 () gmail com>

I have been able to locate a lot of information about attacking
devices such as phones and PDAs via Bluetooth, including a lot of
great information at trifinite.org.  What I am unable to determine is
the extent to which a computer can be compromised using the same
methods.

Does anyone on the list have experience pentesting Bluetooth enabled
computers?  To what extent is a computer that has built in Bluetooth
or an add-in adapter at risk?

Thanks,

Chris
