The hack of iOS devices by a malicious charger is one of the most interesting stories from Black Hat this week. Pretty amazing that the chargers have this much power yet are not authenticated via a solution such as ORIGA from Infineon. (I do not now and have never worked for Infineon. I’m sure that there are many more solutions like this from other companies, this is just one at hand that would serve to fix this vulnerability without giving up any of the functionality. Whether or not a charger needs that functionality is another kettle of worms.)
