Safari 15 has a bug that could leak your browsing history

FingerprintJS, an anti-website fraud tool company, published a message on its website a few days ago, referring to a vulnerability in the Safari browser launched by Apple. Websites have the opportunity to obtain the names of other websites that some users are browsing, and even leak personal data such as user IDs. The problem stems from the IndexedDB API used in Safari 15. Generally, browsers will provide an independent IndexedDB database for each website, allowing websites to store data on the computer. The stored information is generally only used by this website and cannot be detected and accessed by other websites.

The above arrangements are believed to be maintained until coronavirus is under complete control. If the outbreak shows signs of deterioration, the review time is more likely to be extended.

“.Org” domain management rights sold to private company

Many non-profit organizations use “.org” as part of their domain name. The Public Interest Registry, which manages “.org”, has recently confirmed its sale to a private company. The network immediately caused a great response, and the biggest reason was the impact on the price of domain names. As early as June, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers decided to abolish the price ceiling for “.org”, which caused a lot of controversy at that time. Management rights are now sold to private companies, and the representative price may be determined entirely by a company. As another factor, most of the pages that currently use “.org” as part of their URLs are non-profit groups. The suitability of handing over “.org” to a private company is also a focus. Now, non-profit groups have initiated joint signings online, hoping to withdraw the relevant transactions.
