Having to explain to a rather irritated raccoon that those keys you have are not for a spaceship but rather for your car ... that's a discussion you rather don't want to have. "....

    How do you know it wasn't the raccoon who enlisted the squirrels? Hunh? Hunh?

    In my experience, it's usually the raccoons who are the masterminds. They send the squirrels out as expendable scouts. Plausible deniability you see. You were lucky to glimpse the raccoon, They're usually more careful.

    Then again, he could have wanted to be imaged. A false flag operation. Such cunning. Like scorp says, watch out for those car keys. Keep an eye on your cell phone and prosthetic leg too. They'll combine the parts to produce a quantum sub-singularity death ray, and they ain't interested in listening to anything that smacks of excuses.

    A lot of manufactures just gave up, but essentially all devices without update will be (and stay) vulnerable. Personally I would consider not using BT if that's the case.

    Edit: Provided that BT can even be disabled as feature, which is not always the case.

    BT can be disabled under Linux.
