(BlueZ: Arbitrary code execution)
It has been reported that the Bluetooth packet parser does not validate
string length fields in SDP packets.
A physically proximate attacker using a Bluetooth device with an
already established trust relationship could send specially crafted

Exploitation may also be triggered by a local attacker registering a
service record via a UNIX socket or D-Bus interface.
There is no known workaround at this time.
