    My naturally paranoid mind has already thought of this I'm only surprised why it hasn't materialized before. I have a feeling we're going to start seeing a phenomenon such as accessory hygiene. Don't share anything, only buy original etc. I wouldn't be surprised if companies made these just to help their cause a little so peeps stop buying fake stuff.

    Scary stuff though. It could get expensive in more than one way.

    Invasion of privacy and theft of personal information is not a first world problem.

    You’re right. We’re all in this together. It indeed is a global issue. In fact when this happens in a developing country a victim starves. Here in the west they likely have a financial fall back. Having said that, I can imagine folks in poorer countries using less internet banking and the likes.

    These kind of attacks have been around for a long time - they're called HID (Human Interface Device) attacks and are really easy to pull off - maybe not in the form of a Lightning cable but an innocently looking USB stick at any trade show. Once you pop it in, the system thinks it's a legit keyboard and the malicious USB thingy can start sending arbitrary keystrokes/commands.

    Yah for a brief while walking to work I would see usb sticks just sitting on benches and little concrete walls. Almost too perfectly placed...
