What is Juice Jacking?
Juice jacking is a type of cyber attack where criminals install malware on public USB charging stations. When a device is plugged into a compromised charger, the malware is downloaded onto the device, allowing criminals to steal personal information such as login credentials, bank account details, and other sensitive information.
The FBI's Warning Against Public USB Phone Chargers
The FBI tweeted on April 6th warning against the use of public USB phone chargers, stating that "hackers can modify these USB charging ports to install malware on your phone or download data without your knowledge." The warning also advised travelers to carry their power adapter or to use a USB data blocker to protect against such attacks.
Avoid using free charging stations in airports, hotels or shopping centers. Bad actors have figured out ways to use public USB ports to introduce malware and monitoring software onto devices. Carry your own charger and USB cord and use an electrical outlet instead. pic.twitter.com/9T62SYen9T— FBI Denver (@FBIDenver) April 6, 2023
