USB Charger Scam a/k/a Juice Jacking

Beware of charging cords in your hotel room or in the airport. Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office warns a free charge on your electronic device could end up draining your bank account. Juice jacking happens when an unsuspecting user plugs their electronic devices into a USB port or USB cables that are loaded with malware. People don’t see this scam coming, however, if it is too good to be true, it probably is. This scam uses malware that infects the device giving hackers a way in. They can then read your export data, including your passwords. Rather than use any available charger, you should always carry your own charging device, only charging directly from an electrical outlet and using portable batteries that were bought from known venders. The scam is similar to scammers, who steal debit card numbers by putting illegal card readers or skimmers on ATMs. Don’t let the Grinch steal your holiday season.
