I would like to announce a new paper, titled "Temporary user tracking in
major browsers and Cross-domain information leakage and attacks". The
paper is available to download from the following page:
User tracking across domains, processes (in some cases) and windows/tabs is
demonstrated by exploiting several vulnerabilities in major browsers
(Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and to a
limited extent Google Chrome). Additionally, new cross-domain
information leakage, and cross domain attacks are described, which
provide a foundation for attacks such as ?in session phishing?.
According to Opera?s security team, Opera is vulnerable as well, but it
was not researched by the author.
Apple released Safari 4.0 today, which contains a fix for this problem.
