Security experts have identified USB mobile charging in public locations as the #1 opportunity for identity theft and malware for mobile devices. Aptly named “juice jacking,” mobile-charging stations provide hackers with a target-rich environment for malicious activity.
In 2014, a Microsoft study found that 5 out of 10 malware instances were worms spread by USB removable drives. That astounding number led many IT departments to outlaw the use of USB flash drives on any computers connected to an organization’s network. Nevertheless, infection rates through USB continue to climb.
ChargeDefense believes not having people use their USB ports is impractical and nearly impossible to outlaw. Instead, we researched, discovered and developed products to save organizations and individuals from mobile malware disasters.
