Warning As Macs Remotely Hacked By Malicious iPhone Cable On Sale For $200
A security researcher has begun selling malicious iPhone Lightning cables that can provide attackers with remote access to Apple computers. The cables, which cost $200 each, look and function just like original Apple USB cables, except that they contain a wireless implant that can be remotely accessed by an attacker located within 300 feet of the cable.
If a victim plugs in the cable, the attacker will be able to establish a connection to implant, which will give them full access to the victim’s computer. The cable is sold together with a software kit that not allows the attacker to execute various commands on the target machine, but also to erase all evidence of the hack afterward.
