Do public charging stations really steal your phone’s data?
This month, the Denver office of the FBI issued a warning about avoiding public smartphone charging stations through its Twitter account. The tweet said that evildoers could tamper with them in a way that would allow the planting of malware on or the siphoning of data from connected phones.
And last week, as if to amplify that warning, the Federal Communications Commission updated an existing blog post with its own caution against the use of charging stations.
