    Bluetooth leak possible?

    Phone model: galaxy mini s5570
    ROM: cyanogenmod-7.2.0-rc2-tass /rooted

    I have question about security:

    The phone was used to send an audio file to another android phone via bluetooth.
    Before sending, there was a pairing process with code confirmation (compare & confirm.)

    The question is, can the other data on the galaxy mini's SD card be leaked in any way by the person who received the audio file during the bluetooth (paired) connection which was on for about 2 minutes.

    Short: I selected the audio file -> Share -> Bluetooth -> Paired with him (compared code) -> He received -> I disabled bluetooth after 2-3 minutes.

    I know that this sounds silly, however the data on that SD card is confidential, connected with legal cases.

    Thank you very much,
    Best regards

    There should be virtually zero risk. You only shared one file with him, he shared nothing with you and nothing with anyone else.

    Is there a situation where a paired phone can make a request/transfer from my phone during bluetooth connection, without my confirmation?

    I know that this was possible with old phones around 2006,2007.

    Could this been done to me without my confirmation/approval?

    imo, many things can be hacked by elite hackers, but the likelihood someone with those talents would waste it on your Bluetooth connection are in the neighborhood of never going to happen.

    So there is no other (known) way to allow another phone to browse/request my files than to enable bluetooth ftp by an app? (even with that should be a confirmation prompt?)


    Thank you all.

    update: what about this?
