Swiss TV Story aired

Last week the TV story about the BlueBug has been broadcasted at the Swiss television station SFDRS. The name of the show is "Kassensturz", which is well recognized consumer magazine with long tradition in the Swiss television history. The story about the bluetooth vulnerability has been the first tv story with me in this context, where they got everything right. Salzburg Research and my name have been spelled absolutely correct. This must be Swiss precision. A big "Thank you" to Anatol Hug and his colleagues from Kassensturz :)
A realstream of the show is provided here. So you can see the original story yourself.
It is worth mentioning that for Germans or Austrians the Swiss German might sound a little funny. This is also an explanation for my permanent smiling in the video :)

Focus TV Story aired

Yesterday, the story about bluetooth that was produced in mai was broadcasted. Although it was promised to me, the names of the companies I am with ( Salzburg Research and the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and Technologies) were not mentioned at any time. Also my name got misspelled again (Martin Herfurth). I get the impression that all this is done on purpose ... for some strange reason :)

Marco Principato sent me a snipplet of the story so that I can put it on here. And here it is!

NOEO Article about WLAN Insecurity

Last week, the Austrian scientific magazine NOEO published a german article about war driving that I wrote as a result of the teaching activity done at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and Technologies. It is just another article highlighting the problems that the use of WLAN equipment in offices and home areas could cause. Download the article here.

The next article I am going to write for this magazine will be about bluesnarfing.

Today, also the Swiss TV Station SF DRS contacted me in order to do a TV story about Bluetooth insecurity in Zurich.
