What is blues snarfing?
Bluesnarfing is a device hack that runs when a wireless, bluetooth-enabled device is in discoverable mode. Bluesnarfing allows hackers to remotely access Bluetooth device data, B. a user's calendar, contact list, email, and text messages. This attack is carried out without the victim's knowledge.
Bluetooth-enabled devices are susceptible to Bluesnar attacks in the detected mode, as hackers can react to requests from other Bluetooth-enabled devices and thereby gain unauthorized access to information.
Most cell phone discovery modes are enabled by default. Unless the mode is disabled, a device is vulnerable to blues snarfing attacks. The only way to completely protect a wireless device from blues snarfing is to turn off Bluetooth. Keeping the phone in 'invisible' mode provides some protection.
