    Security related bluetooth issue

    First post (or question by me): With all the discussion about keyloggers, password sniffers, etc. should there be any concern about using a bluetooth keyboard and mouse in an office or even a public enviroment?

    Thanks for any answers.

    Sure, Bluetooth transmissions can be sniffed. Some devices may encrypt the transmission, but one would want to know about their specific device.
