In this paper, the authors present a survey on threats and vulnerability attacks on Bluetooth security mechanism. Bluetooth is the Personal Area Network (PAN). It is the kind of wireless ad hoc network. Low cost, low power, low complexity and robustness are the basic features of Bluetooth. It works on radio frequency. Bluetooth technology has many benefits like replacement of cable, easy file sharing, wireless synchronization and internet connectivity. As Bluetooth technology becomes widespread, vulnerabilities in its security protocols are increasing which can be potentially dangerous to the privacy of a user's personal information.
