Bluetooth FUD
Posted on 2-Mar-2005 11:46 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Blog



Just finished reading an article on The Guardian, found through Pocket PC Tools:

"...the author writes: "It may not help Paris in her current phonebook-less state, but she seems to have fallen victim to the latest trend in hacking; blue-snarfing. In recent months, there has been increasing concern over the phenomenon, which, simply put, means using wireless Bluetooth technology used to connect phones to headsets, laptops and other gadgets to get access to people's private data by the back door." Followed by a quote from "Adam Laurie, technical director of security firm the Bunker". Undoubtedly, an Expert."

Yes, an Expert! But, as Pocket PC Tools notes, the Hiptop2 has no Bluetooth (check the specifications)! How is that for spreading FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt)?
