    A new fake iPhone charging cable has been developed that allows attackers to take over Mac and Windows computers as soon as they are plugged in. The malicious cable resembles the original lightning cable that is used to charge iPhones and iPads.

    The fake iPhone cable, developed by security researcher Mike Grover, allows attackers to take over Linux, Mac and Windows computers as soon as they are plugged in to the system and connected to Wi-Fi.
