Magic Blue Hack

There seems to be a lot of interest in this app among BoostApps readers. According to it’s author, MagicBlueHack let’s you:

“Control /Access another Bluetooth mobile such as make Call(Free), Send SMS(free), Read Phone Book from another Mobile without notifying him (Traffic charge can be apply for hacked mobile) by Using Mobile Bluetooth Technology.”

Making “free” calls and sending “free” SMS by leaching off off someone else’s service without notifying would be unethical and illegal. Fortunately for all of us MagicBlueHack doesn’t actually let you do that.

When you start MagicBlueHack it scans for Bluetooth devices within range. You pick the one you want to connect to and then press the Menu key and choose “Connect”. On the i776 the selected device name isn’t highlighted so you have to guess which one you are connecting to. I kept connecting to my PC by accident instead of the phone I was trying to connect to. After several tries I managed to connect MagicBlueHack on my i776 with a Nokia N95

The other user is prompted if they want to allow “Motorola Phone” to connect. If they accept the two devices must be “paired” by entering the same PIN on both devices. So you can really only “hack” someone’s phone if they allow it and share the PIN they entered with you.

Once connected I tried to use MagicBlueHack with the following results:

  • Make phone call: The “hacked” N95 displayed “Calling” plus the number I was calling on its screen. The call connected and the called party could hear me but I couldn’t hear him.
  • Send SMS: Worked OK although MagicBlueHack added the garbage text “AT+CPBR=796 AT+CPBR=797 AT+CPBR=798” to the beginning of each message
  • Read Phone Book: This function doesn’t seem to work. MagicBlueHack reported that it was reading the N95’s phone book but didn’t display anything.

What I think: MagicBlueHack is an interesting technical demonstration of what can be done with Bluetooth but is ultimately pretty useless. The good news is that if you use common sense and don’t accept Bluetooth connections from unknown devices and share Bluetooth PINs with strangers you will never be “hacked” by this software.

      You can’t, Java ME apps don’t work on Android phones. But if you search Google Play for “Bluetooth Hack” there are many similar Android apps.
