    Default Bluetooth demo question

    Hello,
    I am thinking of doing a demo of blue snarfing / blue bugging or some other bluetooth attack for my networking class project.
    I currently do not own a bluetooth phone to attack. Does anyone know what phones a most vulnerable to these types of attacks and if it is possible to get them cheaply on ebay and attack them without actvating them with phone service?

    Thanks

    ps I would be doing this demo right next to my computer so do you think I could just use a BT100 without any external antenna or anything to do this demo?


    ADMIN EDIT:
    Moved from the "How-to's & Guides" section.
    This is neither a "how-to" or a "guide" - it's a question!
    (FYI: The accepted use of the phrase "how-to" in as an intended step-by-step guide of how to do something)

    Didn't you already start a thread about this?

    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    The Nokia 6310/6310i models are good targets for the Bluebugger attack.

    If I buy a new one will it still have this flaw or will the firmware patch this? If the flaw is fixed is in possible to downgrade the firmware?

    First of all, I doubt that Nokia ever patched the firmware properly, although this certainly is speculation. I just can tell you that I haven't seen a Nokia 6310/6310i that is not vulnerable to the Blugbugger attack yet - I mean it's a pretty old model anyway. What about buying a used one at ebay or so? If you just need it for demonstration purposes it does not need to be a brand new model. As of the firmware downgrading, I have to admit that I have no clue actually. Never dealed with this topic before - I'm sorry.
