Alright, I would be first to admit that a term like Bluesnarfing sounds like something coming back up after a hard night of partying. Yet in reality, it is significant enough that the United States’ own US-CERT has stated that this form of wireless data snooping is a serious threat.
Should we stop using Bluetooth headsets because of this? Please, give me a break. I am risk of a bigger threat by buying something off of the TV by using my credit card over a cordless phone. Look, the only real threat to using Bluetooth for most people is having your mobile phone’s battery being drained at an alarming rate!
So do you believe that Bluetooth is a real threat to your phone’s security? Are you storing your address, social security number or other critical data on it? Hit the comments and share your thoughts.
