    Of course you would have acquired the persons consent to bypass the security code right?

    Surely that's why Bluetooth standards have been updated to combat this security threat?

    By default though, older mobile phones (for example) don't have this security option and may even have Bluetooth switched on by default!

    Yes, but it's possible to brute force crack them. All you need is a packet capture of the device talking to something else. Here's a video.

    Enjoy.
