Today’s smartphones use near field communication technology for a wide variety of purposes. This short range radio communications method allows the use of headsets, mobile payments, external speakers, keyboards, and all sorts of other uses. As with any technology, however, the use of NFC communications provides attackers with another pathway to exploit security vulnerabilities. In this video, learn about common proximity attacks including NFC attacks, Bluejacking, and Bluesnarfing.
