I'm asking how does one steal files by connecting to a laptop's WIFI / Bluetooth and can it be done with the laptop powered off if there is a battery?

Could you please explain how you would connect to a laptop's WIFI / Bluetooth and brute force the login, step by step?

I'm not asking for a hacking tutorial as misunderstood by someone, this is for educational purposes so I can understand it better. There is no existing explanation of that online.

  • Based on your previous question, are you asking about the RDP Port as mentioned by schroeder? RDP is "Remote Desktop Protocol" and is a way to remotely connect to a computer over a network (WiFi or otherwise). support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028379/… Commented Oct 25, 2019 at 17:19

    @user220481: what has the "port" to do with WiFi and Bluetooth? Since I cannot find anything like an "RDF port" with your description would you please provide some reference (wikipedia, vendor manual...) to what you mean? Commented Oct 25, 2019 at 17:23
  • The RDF was mentioned in my earlier post by schroeder about stealing files by brute forcing the RDP Port. Please see my edit, I'm asking for an explanation of how one steals files by connecting to a laptop's WIFI or Bluetooth with physical proximity but no internet

1 Answer 1

  1. If they have physical access the laptop's wireless devices can be hacked, while it does not display as connected, it is connecting to a Wifi hotspot of theirs to send your files.

  2. the laptop is on or in a suspended state and they are within Wifi range they can exploit vulnerabilities in the laptop's drivers and hardware and send the files.

  3. WakeonWLAN could be exploited and the files sent when the laptop is running again.
