    • If a target wasn't really looking for it, the OM.G Cable is almost identical to Apple's cable.

  2. How to spot the difference between the O.MG Cable and a standard USB-A Cable, Apple's cable has no notch: шаг 2, изображение 1 из 1
    • For starters, Apple does not have any kind of impression in their cable's.

  3. How to spot the difference between the O.MG Cable and a standard USB-A Cable: шаг 3, изображение 1 из 1
    • The metal for Apple's cable uses a more matted finish when compared to the OM.G Cable.

  4. How to spot the difference between the O.MG Cable and a standard USB-A Cable, Thinner Communication Pins: шаг 4, изображение 1 из 1
    • The pins for Apple's cable are actually thinner then the OM.G's.

    • The reason for the thicker pins on the OM.G Cable may be due to the cable drawing more power for the covert components.

  5. How to spot the difference between the O.MG Cable and a standard USB-A Cable, On the Back: шаг 5, изображение 1 из 1
    • Flipping over the cables will show that their is also a small notch on the back of the OM.G Cable, just like the front. What we don't see on the back of the OM.G Cable is the seam in the metal.

  6. How to spot the difference between the O.MG Cable and a standard USB-A Cable, Side View: шаг 6, изображение 1 из 1
    • On the side, we can see that the OM.G Cable does have a seam on the side of the device.

    • Presumably, this is due to the assembly process for the OM.G Cable being different due to the difference in internal components.

Заключение

While this guide can show you how to identify a malicious OM.G Cable, there are other options for protecting yourself.

The same company that makes this cable also offers a Malicious Cable Detector to help you detect if your cable is malicious. In addition it is also important to use cables from a trusted manufacturer, I.E your device's primary manufacturer.

Per the manufacturer's website pictures it appears that the the indentation on the USB connector has been eliminated. I have not confirmed this with an actual cable.

I have an OMG cable and the dimple is not present and the seam is on the back like the Apple cable.

I'm wondering if they released an updated one that is harder to distinguish from Apple's cable.

Jacob Mehnert -

So the cable has been updated now what do you do to know??
