Bluetooth provides a wireless, point-to-point, "personal area network" for personal digital assistants (PDAs), notebooks, printers, mobile phones, audio components, and other devices. The wireless technology can be used anywhere if you have two or more devices that are Bluetooth-enabled. And as with any wireless connectivity, there are bound to be security issues since data is being sent over the air invisibly from device to device.

Source: BBW Exchange - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
This new Linux-based wireless intrusion detection system is aimed at stopping a network's security from being compromised by detecting the installation of unauthorized access points. The wireless detection system utilizes wireless drones to develop a wireless network solely to detect any wireless signals that emanate from within their workplace. By incorporating a GPS module the location of any intruding device can be pinpointed. A standard web interface allows the administrator to monitor network usage; the system uses e-mail and pop-up alerts to signal possible intrusions of the network.
