An illegal attempt to harm someone’s computer, tablet or smartphone, or the information on it, by using a charging port.

Example sentence(s):
  • The first and most obvious way to avoid juice jacking is to stay away from public charging stations or portable wall chargers. Malwarebytes Labs
  • But while juice jacking is a real security threat, thus far there has been little evidence that it has become a widespread problem. Apple and Google have also added safety features to iOS and Android operating systems to help prevent juice jacking. Norton
  • In precisely this fashion, making users aware of the threat of juice jacking both decreases the chance that people will be juice jacked and increases pressure on companies to better manage their security practices (it’s great, for example, that your iOS device pairs so easily and makes your user experience smooth, but the implications of lifetime pairing with 100% trust in the paired device are quite serious).

Le juice jacking

Definition from Wikipédia:
Le juice jacking est un type de cyberattaque visant un téléphone intelligent, une tablette ou un autre périphérique informatique utilisant un port de rechargement (pour recharger sa batterie) qui sert également de port de transfert de données, par exemple un port USB.

Example sentence(s):
  • En 2012 la NSA aussi alertait ses employés quant aux risques de juice jacking. Mais le grand public reste très peu conscient des risques que représentent les bornes de recharge USB. - Yahoo News  
  • Le juice Jacking utilise un kiosque de recharge par USB pour récupérer vos données lorsque vous branchez votre appareil à ce kiosque. Toujours en se servant de ce kiosque de recharge, un cybercriminel peut installer des logiciels malveillants sur votre compagnon mobile (téléphone, tablette, etc.). - Blog Sécurité Informatique EISN  

On emprunte à l'anglais pour désigner ce concept.
