This Lightening Cable is Shocking

Most of us plug our phones into our computers without a second thought, but that may soon change. A hacker who goes by the name MG recently revealed that he’s rigged a bunch of Apple USB lightning cables with small Wi-Fi-enabled implants, which, when plugged into a computer, give remote access of the machine to a nearby hacker.

Dubbed the O.MG cable, it’s almost indistinguishable from a standard iPhone charging cable. This is just one more reason to stay on top of security updates and use extra caution with peripheral devices.
