Ever want to walk into an airport terminal and 0wn every mobile phone, PDA and Blackberry in the place, while casually sipping a cup of Starbucks? Well, now you can! Fresh from the How-the-%$#&!-did they-get-this-through-Customs Department, meet the BlueBag, a portable Bluetooth sniffer designed for launching covert attacks. This stylish little package cost about $700 to assemble and holds a motherboard, 8 dongles, an amplified antenna for picking up cell phones from a around 200 meters and various wireless antennas for scanning vulnerable devices, retrieve information from them and even push out malicious code, according to Stefano Zanero of Secure Network S.r.l in Italy. Zanero and colleagues Claudio Merloni and Luca Carettoni demonstrated Blue Bag here at the Black Hat Briefings in Las Vegas.

The two have created a portable, covert Bluetooth Attack and Infection Device that can be wheeled around town -- to airports, trainstations, local coffee spots -- all without attracting attention.
