These hardware protections include so-called USB condoms — charging connections where only the power connection works and the data transfer pins are absent. Spolaor and his academic colleague in the Netherlands and Italy exploited a hidden communication channel based on the electrical current provided for charging the smartphone. A malicious app posing as a clean app, such as an alarm clock, can remain silent until the device is plugged to a USB port and left unattended.
A powerbank under the control of hackers would be able to measure these peaks, the pattern of which forms a signal that can be decoded to pull off data from a compromised mobile device. A victim would be left with no indication that anything was amiss.
You can now buy an iPhone or USB cable that can spy on your calls and Don't ever plug your phone into a "charging station" or another. Researchers from Georgia Tech showed off an attack this week which used a modified iPhone charger to infect an iPhone 5 with spyware in.
The exploit could be carried out without the need for the malicious app to have access to the internet or other permissions — providing it has access to the information that it wants to exfiltrate. Similar attacks against Apple devices are an avenue for further research, Spolaor told conference delegates attending his talk.

Mic is hazy at best and appears to have interference, 2. USB wire plugged in hides camera a little, 3. Camera is p max not p as advertised? Soo - it works, yes, quality of image is ok, sound is poor and overall config not a breeze but passable. A really cool design for a spy camera.
Nobody will expect that a there will be camera in a charger. Definitely a great design and a value buy. This little gadget caught my eye and i want to use with an adapter. Right out of the box it looked just like any usb charger you have laying around your house.
I plugged it in and it flashes and begins to record. The image quality is pretty good for how small the camera is.
Remember the USB cable is flimsy so try to do the extraction on a Steady Surface, otherwise the cable might come loose interupting video sync.. Usually dispatched within 6 to 10 days. This is a lightweight and stylish hidden spy camera. You wouldn't know this is a camera when you look at it, it just like a modern digital alarm clock. It come with the 16 GB micro SD, so we can just set up and start record the video. It take some time for set up the camera, but is easy if you follow the instruction provided.
The quality of the picture is good and clear. Now we can monitor our home away with our mobile apps easily, give us some more security when we are away. I like the simple, stylish and elegance design.
Amazing spy camera, I really love the camera because it's viable and really well hidden which people cant see from a distance. Altogether it seems a well-designed piece of equipment. The design of this camera is really great, because our family always travel outside, there will be no one in the house for a long time, and with it, no matter where I am, I can always see everything in my house.
Once you've done this bit, the easy part starts - setting it up for remote viewing. This is an invaluable bit of kit if you have multiple devices to be charged. I already had a similar one but my better half liked it so much she wanted it so I've had to buy another to replace it.
Having 8 ports means you can charge lots of devices simultaneously at up to 8A maximum. This means for instance that using all 8 ports will give you an average of 1A per port The exact power draw will totally depend on the devices you are charging.
The display tells you what's going on with each device and automatically stops charging when complete. This gives you huge flexibility for a charging station. I leave my leads in more or less permanently and keep one cable for my iPod,
