Disable Bluetooth Sharing Bluetooth sharing allows users to wirelessly transmit files between Mac OS X and Bluetooth-enabled devices, including personally owned cell phones and tablets. A malicious user might introduce viruses or malware onto the system or extract sensitive files. Disabling Bluetooth Sharing mitigates this risk.


Parameter: enabled/disabled


Technical Mechanism: To check if Bluetooth Sharing is enabled, Open up System Preferences->Sharing and verify that 'Bluetooth Sharing' is not checked 'ON'. If it is 'ON', this is a finding.
