Juice Jacking Scam

Juice Jacking Scam is a cyber-theft strategy where criminals install malware on public USB charging stations to access and steal data from electronic devices. Authorities like the FBI and FCC have warned about this scam, particularly targeting travelers. Thieves use corrupted USB ports to lock devices or export personal data and passwords. The FCC and other organizations offer tips to prevent falling victim to these scams, such as using AC power outlets, carrying external batteries, and using charging-only cables that prevent data from being transferred. Awareness and precautionary measures are crucial to combatting this growing threat.
