    Default Help with bluetooth pentesting

    Hello everyone

    I am new to this forum as well as backtrack and linux. I started working with backtrack because I am currently in a security class for my masters program and I am in charge of providing a demonstration of any sort of bluetooth exploit. Now to my problem. After a few headaches and research I was finally able to get my bluetooth dongle to be recognized by BT2 but all I can really do is scan and I have a feeling its because hcid wont start. Everytime I plug in my adapter the KDE bluetooth framework pops up a message saying that it cannot connect to the SDP server. Here are the commands I usually type into the terminal to get my adapter up and running.

    First I try to get hcid to start with no avail:

    bt ~ # hcid -n -s
    hcid[4545]: Bluetooth HCI daemon
    hcid[4545]: syntax error line 25
    hcid[4545]: Can't connect to system message bus: Failed to connect to socket /usr/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory
    hcid[4545]: Unable to get on D-Bus

    Then I get the adapter up and run a test scan:

    bt ~ # hciconfig hci0 up
    bt ~ # hciconfig hci0 -a
    hci0: Type: USB

    I just want to be able to show a proof of concept for atleast one bluetooth exploit like bluesnarfing, carwhisperer, bluebugging none of these will work because i can not make a proper connection with my phone or any other device. When I try to make a connection with my phone my phone asks for a passcode I have tried entering all of the default passcodes and have yet to make a connection. I am using a linksys USBBT100 adapter. Please if anyone can shed some light on my problem please do so. Thanks in advance.
