Los Angeles

After the happenings in Las Vegas, I got myself a rental car and started traveling through california. After visiting San Diego, I went to Los Angeles in order to meet the guys from flexilis that I met before at the defcon convent. After I arrived in the office of flexilis, which is at a really cool location next to LA downtown, John Hering told me about the appointment with G4TechTV that was scheduled the next day at 6 am.

After sleeping a little, we got up really early in the morning (4:30 am) in order to drive to the Santa Monica Pier. Arrived there, we met the camera crew of G4TechTV along with Kevin Rose, one of the hosts of the "The Screen Savers" show. There, we (John Hering, James Burgess, Kevin Mahaffey, Mike Outmesguine and me) were able to show a full-fledged BlueBug attack on a Nokia 6310i that was located 1.08 miles (1,78 km) away from the attacking laptop. This world record-setting experiment was filmed and will air together with other bluetooth related stuff soon (they said).

This laptop we used for this experiment was equipped with modified bluetooth radio (with external antenna jack) and a connected 19dBi Quad Antenna for the 2.4GHz spectrum. More information on this event may be found on the Long-Distance-Snarf page.
