A hacking technique that exploits Bluetooth connections to snatch data from a wireless device. Bluesnarfing is one of the most easily implementable types of hacking. It can happen without the user's knowledge, and cybercriminals can steal emails, text messages, or contact lists and even make phone calls. An attacker must be within at least 10 meters of their target, the Bluetooth function has to be on, and the device must be discoverable for the attack to succeed. However, in some cases, they can initiate a bluesnarfing attack from a greater distance. There are plenty of ready-to-use bluesnarfing tools available online, which makes it even easier for hackers to perform this attack.
