报告地点：线上，腾讯会议（ID：707 601 535）
Smartphones have become a major target for cyber-attackers, and there is a need to deploy suitable security mechanisms. In the literature, malware has received much attention, while the phone-charging threats are often ignored. With the increasing demand of charging facilities, public charging facilitates become common and popular in recent years. However, these public charging facilities may open a hole for attackers to infer private/sensitive data from smartphones. This talk first introduces several existing charging attacks via a USB charging cable, as well as our developed Juice Filming Charging (JFC) attack that can steal users' private information through automatically video-capturing phone screen during the whole charging period, via a standard USB connector. Then, this talk presents several potential solutions to defend against such attacks, and discusses the impact and future trend of USB attacks on mobile devices.
