A security flaw in Apple’s “Safari” browser threatens the privacy of...


The technical website “FingerprintsJS” reported that it had detected a security vulnerability in “Safari”, the Internet browser of Apple, threatening millions of users.

According to the site, this vulnerability provides an opportunity for hackers to obtain the latest browsing history of users and some of their Google account data.

The vulnerability exists in Safari 15 across all supported platforms, as well as third-party browsers on iOS 15 and iPad OS 15. And it stems from a problem with the Safari application for IndexDB (an API that stores data).

According to the site, the current vulnerability leads to a bug in the database names instead of the content itself, and this will be enough for any malicious site owners to get the Google username of Safari users and discover their profile picture and learn more about them.

It is worth noting that the site indicated that it first reported this vulnerability on November 28, but Apple did not respond to it with security patches, according to what was mentioned.

The site believes that the only solution to eliminate this vulnerability may be to use a third-party browser on Mac computers or block all JavaScript scripts.
