Definition Edit

Bluejacking (also called bluetooth hijacking) is an attack conducted on Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, such as cellular telephones, smart phones, and PDAs.

Overview Edit

Bluejacking is initiated by an attacker sending unsolicited messages to a user of a Bluetooth-enabled device. The actual messages do not cause harm to the user's device, but they are used to entice the user to respond in some fashion or add the new contact to the device's address book. This message-sending attack resembles spam and phishing attacks conducted against e-mail users. Bluejacking can cause harm when a user initiates a response to a bluejacking message that is sent with a harmful intent.
