Bluesnarfing is the theft of information through Bluetooth. Hackers do it by sneaking into mobile devices — smartphones, laptops, tablets, or PDAs whose connection has been left open by their owners. It implies exploiting Bluetooth vulnerabilities in order to grab such data as text or email messages, contact lists, and more.

It’s easy to become a victim of a bluesnarfing attack if you have the habit of using Bluetooth in public places and your phone is usually in a discoverable mode.
