Bluesmack is a cyber attack done on bluetooth enabled devices. The attack uses L2CAP (Logic Link Control And Adaptation Protocol) layer to transfer an oversized packet to the Bluetooth enabled devices, resulting in the Denial of Service (DoS) attack. The attack can be performed in a very limited range, usually around 10 meters for the smartphones. For laptops, it can reach up to the 100 meters with powerful transmitters.
