Bluejack! [Feb. 8th, 2006|09:50 am]
The Love Bug
I'm sitting on a train to Paddington, and I've been bluejacked three times by someone trying to send me A .sis file.

Oh, the joys of not owning a Symbian phone!

No, Mr Bluetooth-Symbian-Virus-Sender, you shall not have my Windows Smartphone! :o)

The only reason there are no Windows Mobile viruses in the wild is that there aren't enough smartphones out there to make it worthwhile writing them ;)

Thats not bluejacking, bluejacking is sending a MESSAGE to another device in the form of a contact, such as u-got-bluejacked etc, if the person was trying to gain control of your device then thats SNARFING.

There is a site I have found for you called BlueJackAddicts and if you search google you will find their site, it has a what is etc
