Charging Cables that can Hack Your Phone

Good grief! Researchers have now made a USB charging cable that has a chip embedded to hack your phone. I’m still having trouble convincing non-tech folks not to plug strange dongles into their devices. Cables now too?

It’s been years since I’ve used a cable that wasn’t mine. I’ve bought several Anker chargers from Amazon along with some of their cables. It’s probably not a bad idea for you to start carrying your own batteries and cables going forward. Good luck convincing Uncle Jimmy.
