Eavesdropping Via Bluetooth

Have you ever seen people walking down the street talking to themselves? No, I am not talking about crazy homeless people. I am talking about, what I like to refer to as, "blue tooth people". You know who I am talking about, I am talking about the people that walk around everywhere with a bluetooth headset on their heads all of the time.

I found a video on that shows you how to connect to those headsets using a Linux program called Car Whisperer and a bluetooth dongle. Using this tool, you can connect to any bluetooth headset because the default pin number on all of them is 0000. Once connected you can eavesdrop on phone conversations, and even conversations the person is having without his phone being on.

For added prankster fun, this utility also lets you inject arbitrary audio into their headset as well. Reminds me of the movie Real Genius.

"Hello Kent. This is God. Stop Playing with yourself."

Anyway, here is the video I am referring to. It is pretty eye opening. Enjoy!
