F-Secure Bluetooth Honeypot Prototype

Mikko writes over on the F-Secure "News from the Lab" Blog:

We've been developing a Bluetooth honeypot. An early prototype was given a test run at the CeBIT trade fair during the week. The embedded device announces itself as a Bluetooth phone in discoverable mode. It detects Bluetooth devices within a one hundred meter range and creates a list of the device names found. It also accepts all file transfers and scans them for known mobile viruses.

We were scanning from our Hall 7 booth for a week. At any given time we would see more than 100 Bluetooth devices wandering within our range. Grand total: 12500 unique devices that a) had Bluetooth, b) had it enabled, c) had it visible. Unbelievable.
