Bluetooth Sniffer Guns – A Good Way To Get Shot

According to a FOX news article today on security, hackers can aim a Bluetooth sniffing gun at you from long range and tap into your cellphone.

Full story – HERE

Yes, adding a stock to anything increases the stability of it, but If I saw someone pointing one of these things at me from a distance i’d be seeking cover not making assumptions and remarking “oh those crazy Bluetooth sniffers, up to their same old antics”

Photo evidence of why it looks like a good way to get shot by the police:

Hehe the old rooftop position… yea that won’t arouse and fear or suspicion :roll:

This guy even has a scope on his!

Not a good idea guys… work on disguising it better!

  1. Man, way to go Fox.

    This scare-piece is talking about stuff at least 5 years old. They had BT “sniper” rifles at DefCon 12 for pete’s sake (2004). And they weren’t “new” then…

      hehe yea I think they just have articles like this one on rotation to use a couple of times per year in different contexts.

  2. I like Pringle’s cans for my directional antennas. Not so likely to get proned out by the local Po Po.

      yea pringles cans are definitely more low key. Even with a scope and a makeshift stock on a pringles can you would likely just get laughed at.
