Chris,

http://www.niksula.cs.hut.fi/~jiitv/bluesec.html covers the risk per
security from the "information leakage" path... Crypto, etc...

As far as having buffer overflows, etc in implementations..? If that is
your question.. Where there is code, there are often errors. I doubt
anyone with unpublished exploits is going to post anything more about
it.

If it's accessible, I'd say it is at risk. At least until a few
"assessments" are performed, both black/white box. It's not any
different than any other wired/wireless device.

Subject: Attacking computers over Bluetooth

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
