Have you ever been stuck at an airport? You’ve checked all your social networks and texted all your friends. Then you see that scary message – “10% charge left”. You find the closest charging station and plug in your phone. And just like that, you’re the victim of a cyberattack. So you should never use airport USB charging stations. This is known as “juice jacking”, and it’s a real risk in public places. Charging stations in shopping centers, airports, hotels, and food courts, or even on public transport can hide things that put your data security at risk. The hackers install a special program on a public charging station. Anyone who connects their device will get that suspicious software installed straight on to their phones. So how does it work?
