How does it work?

These O.MG cables were created and commercialized by a security researcher MG. He has built these cables with extraordinary features. As soon as the cable is connected it creates a Wi-Fi hotspot for the hacker automatically, as an interface accessed by an ordinary web browser and enables the hacker to start recording keystrokes. The cable adds geofencing allowing hackers to start payloads on the device based on their physical location.

Warning For Apple iPhone Users

“It pairs well with the self-destruct feature if an O.MG Cable leaves the scope of your engagement and you do not want your payloads leaking or being accidentally run against random computers,” MG explained to Vice. “We tested this out in downtown Oakland and were able to trigger payloads at over 1 mile.”

It is also confirmed by MG that the cables have successfully hacked USB-C: “There were people who said that Type C cables were safe from this type of implant because there isn’t enough space. So, clearly, I had to prove that wrong,” MG said. The combination of USB-C with lightning cables makes iPhones a major target. 

However Vice has reported that Apple has not responded to this Warning For Apple iPhone Users and did not comment about the new OMG cables.

These new O.MG cables are now on sale for $140, so it is not advisable to borrow someone else’s charging cable.
