iwas using a socket bluetooth card and fig labs software to connect to my phone.
I scanned for suitable sources and found my phone and one other source ( blue man group or something.
I chose my phone connection and connected to this
When i got home i checked the obex inbox and found a 300kb file in there from blue man group (video)
just surprised as to how this had got there as i had not connected to the network and had not 'paired' any connection.
bit worrying really.

aparentlly there are some buletooth bilboards around
might want to tighten up the security so that obex needs authentication and pairing with a key, if it dosent need a key then anyone can set up the pairing without your involment afaik

check your /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf for the encryption and authentication settings.
