报告题目：USB Cable based Charging Attacks on Smartphones: Design and Impact
报 告 人：蒙威志博士
摘 要：Smartphones such as Android phones and iPhones are widely adopted worldwide and users’ privacy are challenged by various malicious applications. In the academia, malware has received much attention, while the phone-charging threats are often ignored. However, current public charging facilities may open a hole for cyber attackers to infer private / sensitive data from smartphones. This talk first introduces several existing charging attacks via 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. The attack efficiency relies on the observations that users are not aware of any risk when charging their phones in public places and that most users would interact with their phone during the charging procedure. Then, this talk presents several potential solutions to defend against such attacks, and discusses the future directions.
