At the Def Con conference, hacker and developer Michael Grover, known by the nickname MG, showed the O.MG Elite cable with a built-in web server, USB power, Wi-Fi access and a keylogger. It allows you to hack PCs and smartphones, and then monitor their work, imitate button presses or enter commands. Almost all current operating systems are supported.
This is the second version of the cable, it can send and receive data wirelessly. The first version had a Wi-Fi access point, but its capabilities were limited.
O.MG Elite allows you to intercept button presses, launch attacks or actions using the console, download malware or steal saved passwords from the browser, transmitting them to an attacker over the Internet. There is also a keylogger that tracks button presses and can store up to 650,000 entries in the cable’s own memory.
In this case, the antivirus will not help, because from the point of view of the system, such a cable is not a virus. It itself looks like a charger cable, so it can be offered to the victim. Lightning, USB-A, and USB-C versions are available, so the cable can be used to hack Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. The issue price is $ 180, the author plans to sell such cables to everyone.
Previously, the LastPass password manager was hacked.

Cloudflare introduces world’s first eSIM with better security than VPN
Cloudflare has introduced a new solution that may be suitable for smartphone and mobile Internet users. We are talking about an eSIM card called Zero Trust SIM. Its peculiarity is that it provides an increased level of security, reducing the risk of number substitution.
In technical terms, we are talking about the transfer of DNS requests through the Cloudflare gateway, which allows you to protect them from interception and spoofing. Also promised is a check of all intermediate nodes through which the device accesses the Internet.
According to Cloudflare CTO John Graham-Cumming, Zero Trust SIM technology can outperform VPNs and other security systems as it provides cell-level protection.
Zero Trust SIM will launch first in the US, where only a virtual card for iOS and Android will be available at first. When activated, it will bind to a specific device and allow you to protect it. Physical maps are also expected in the future.
The company is also launching Zero Trust for Mobile Operators, an affiliate program for telecom operators that will enable them to offer subscriptions to the services and tools of the Zero Trust platform. In addition, a similar project is expected for the Internet of Things.
