Bluesnarfing… Again!

Not quite sure what the news angle is on this, but two months ago there was lots of news about a supposed security vulnerability in many Bluetooth phones, which was nicknamed “bluesnarfing”. The various phones that had the vulnerability pretty quickly responded and made updates to close it. So, why, all of a sudden, are people talking about bluesnarfing all over again. It seems like someone’s just trying to get additional publicity for their computer security firm.
