All douchebags are cyborgs.
But if someone was trying to hack into your Bluetooth from 32 feet away, you would know about it, right? Well, let me introduce you to two hilarious new words for your vocabulary: "bluebugging" and "bluesnarfing." Bluesnarfing, while sounding like a bizarre sexual act involving that thing from ThunderCats, is actually the act of a hacker gaining access to your phone via the Bluetooth connection and downloading all the information he can before the connection breaks. It kind of makes you wonder how someone would even know your phone was near enough to hack. So, on a whim, I Googled "Bluetooth radar," and within five minutes I had this on my laptop:
That little blip on the radar is my iPhone. Now I know that it's within range of me and is accessible via Bluetooth. Someone a whole lot craftier than I am might already be able to do some damage. Now, this is just me sitting in my house. But imagine if I were using this on, say, a college campus. I'd see blips all over that radar just waiting to get their blues snarfed. Creepy, sure, but bluebugging is even worse. Now that I know your Bluetooth is there, I would activate my second bit of software, which can connect to your device, giving me access to your phone's features. I can track your location, listen to your calls, make my own calls, read and send text messages, and load your phone with pictures of an old man's wiener if I wanted to.
