Haraldscan – BlueTooth Discovery Scanner

Prevent Network Security Leaks with Acunetix

I thought a while ago about posting some stuff on Bluetooth hacking, but never got round to it. Have posted a couple of new articles on Bluetooth but haven’t yet posted any tools. So let’s start with Haraldscan – a Bluetooth discovery scanner.

The scanner will be able to determine Major and Minor device class of device, as well as attempt to resolve the device’s MAC address to the largest known Bluetooth MAC address Vendor list.

The goal of this project is to obtain as many MAC addresses mapped to device vendors as possible.


  • Python 2.6
  • Pybluez
  • PySQLite


  1. Unpack to a directory
  2. Run python haraldscan -b to build database
  3. python haradscan [Options] to run Harald Scan

You can download Haraldscan here:

    Interesting tool, I wrote an article about hacking bluetooth in my blog some time ago (sorry, but it’s in Spanish), but at that time, a didn’t know this tool.
    One more to my security tools list, thanks!
