Officials have warned about the growing threat of malware being transmitted through public USB charging stations.

As these charging stations have become more common—in hotels, airports, train stations, and even on some city sidewalks—hackers have developed a new set of hacking techniques to take advantage of them.

The article goes on to state the following:

Commonly known as ‘juice jacking,’ hackers can send malware programs from their own phones or laptops and into the charging station hardware through the USB port, after which the stations effectively become a distribution hub for viruses.

Another danger: a USB cable left behind. Hackers can add malware to the end of the cable, then leave it so that someone else will use it.
