The researchers, who will be presenting their proof-of-concept charger known as Mactans at the upcoming Black Hat security conference, say: “despite the plethora of defense mechanisms in iOS, we successfully injected arbitrary software into current-generation Apple devices running the latest operating system (OS) software. All users are affected, as our approach requires neither a jail-broken device nor user interaction.”
