This Normal-Looking Lightning Cable Actually Steals All of Your Data


Recommended Posts

The cable looks like it was made by Apple, but is actually produced by a hacking company.



Here’s some Mr. Robot-level intrigue for you: Imagine an innocuous-looking USB-to-Lightning cable that, once plugged into your machine, actually helps hackers steal all of the data from your iPhone and inject malware onto your device. If that sounds like something from a far-fetched TV show, it is, surprise, actually a thing.


Blimey !! I wonder if they are making cables that work like that for Android phones ?  🧐

Don't worry. With Android (Google) phones, all your data is scarfed automagically and sent to the mothership. You don't even need a cable. ;)
