IPhone hacking cables on sale
The tricks of modern computer hackers are becoming more sophisticated. This summer, technology was introduced that allowed Apple to take control of the iPhone by replacing Apple's Lightning cable with a somewhat redesigned “specialist” cable. Fake accessories were virtually indistinguishable from branded cables and could easily mislead the consumer. Now these cables are already on sale.

The counterfeit Lightning cable made it possible to establish remote access to the iPhone, and their existence was told by a cybersecurity specialist at the DefCon conference, where technology developer Mike Grover sold a few for $ 200. The current cost and the number of "released" hacker cables is unknown.

An ordinary user cannot distinguish Lightning cable from a cyber security specialist, called O.MG Cable, from an original accessory from Apple, and its acquisition may lead to unforeseen consequences. Therefore, experts insist on the need to buy products only from official, certified Apple dealers, which will be an additional guarantee of iPhone security.

My name is Lee Bryan, and I took up programming in seventh grade on my own. At first, I used one or two books as references. Later, the books piled up. I studied computer engineering at Technical University of Berlin. There, I earned my degree. I gained many years of experience as a software developer in Berlin’s startup scene. During this time, I constantly read international reference books to keep up with the latest news and trends.
