Hi

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:

http://www.trusteer.com/temporary-user-tracking-in-major-browsers

Abstract:
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.

Thanks,
-Amit

Amit Klein, CTO, Trusteer
