State of the Art Juice Jacking Attacks and Countermeasures for Mobile Devices

posted in #IT Security, Mobile & Cloud on the 25.01.2024

Juice Jacking describes a family of attacks on mobile device that utilise a manipulated charging cable for extracting data or installing malware. Users are particularly susceptible to these attacks in places where they use public charging infrastructure instead of their own equipment, such as at charging stations at airports. Although the general attack mechanism has been known for several years, new methods keep being found that allow circumventing countermeasures.

As part of this project, we provide an overview of different options for Juice Jacking. In addition to a literature research regarding existing approaches, we present considerations for exploiting technological changes in charging interfaces to bypass existing countermeasures.
