As if we don't have enough to worry about... Our data can be stolen at USB charging stations. This is a great gadget to keep your data safe. I got DataBlock as blog drop, but this is a great stocking filler for adults and children this Christmas. It retails between R100 - R150, and is available for a limited time for R99.
Did you know that South Africa has the third highest number of cyber crime victims worldwide, resulting in a loss of about R2.2 billion each year to cyber attacks? (SABRIC) That's scary!
Coined back in 2011, Juice Jacking is a cyber attack that commonly involves the installation of malware on to smartphones when inserting them into a USB charging terminal. This malware subsequently copies all the data stored on that device. The tech used to compromise a public USB charging point is easily available and therefore puts many of its users at risk. The data transferred includes images, phone numbers, passwords, which if in the wrong hands, can be very dangerous.
DataBlock is a USB connection that, when added to your charger, will prevent your private information and data being stolen by a third party.
