Howto build a BlueSniper Rifle Part I

Tom’s Hardware has a great tutorial on the BlueSniper Rifle, created by Flexilis. This was showcased at Defcon 12 to show that there were ways to exploit the Bluetooth vulnerability and scan devices from afar, while manufacturers were assuring their customers that it was only close range contact that was needed.
This bluetooth sniper rifle costs quite a bit to build since it has an onboard linux computer (Gumstix) but it is definitely better than the predecessor.
This also goes to show that hardware hackers are always looking for new and interesting projects that create awareness. Security by obscurity is not something that manufacturers can use as part of the scheme to delay patches anymore.
