Eavesdropping on Bluetooth headsets…

I found this article over at in which Joshua Wright demonstrates how a Bluetooth headset can be hijacked, allowing audio to be sent or received on the device.  All that is necessary is to sniff the device address and use the default pin, and after this the device can be “tapped” (while not in a call) and all audio around the mic can be listened to remotely.

 Here’s the link.
