Video-Jacking Attack: Attacker can see everything you see.

Aries Security researchers have described how you could fall victim of a video-jacking attack by docking your phone at unfamiliar charging stations.

A device that is hidden in what appears to be a charging station, worth $220 is used for the attack. A device connected to the charging station exposes virtually everything to the attacker. The attacker can see user passwords when entered, all taps and whatever the user is seeing and doing on their device.

Devices vulnerable to this attack includes several Androids, iPhones and other HDMI ready smartphones manufactured by Asus, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Samsung and ZTE.
