Default Bluetooth Bitchslap -- How to own just about any device with BT

Wow just wow, not that i am terribly surprised by this, but the scale is pretty large, to just about every phone in existence with bluetooth and every laptop that has bluetooth, and requires ZERO user input.

I kinda want someone to Worm the fuck out of it... and either just post entire phone contents imgur for lols, or just something less malicious, but still funny, like every phone playing Epic Sax Guy in Unison.

Lawnmower man style.

Never liked or trusted bluetooth. They might as well call it bendover. Plus, douchebags use it for hipster bollocks. Does the world really suffer without it? So I for one look forward to it's well deserved owning.

Damn it... The article I read this morning implied this was a Windows problem. I didn't want to hear that my phone is vulnerable.

Has anyone come across any suggested methods to scan for affected devices? I suspect I have a few.
