Vulnerability Note VU#258390
Apple Mac OS X with Bluetooth enabled may allow file exchange without prompting users
Apple Mac OS X with Bluetooth support may unintentionally allow files to be exchanged with other systems by default.
Mac OS X includes support for the Bluetooth networking protocol suite. Bluetooth is a communication technology that enables short-range communication between devices.
The default Bluetooth settings in OS X may allow files to be exchanged with other devices unknowingly. The default location for files that are exchanged may also be used by other applications, resulting in unintended information disclosure.
Remote attackers may be able to exchange files with a Bluetooth-enabled system running Mac OS X, resulting in unintended information disclosure.
