Google researchers have reportedly discovered multiple security vulnerabilities in Apple’s Safari web browser that hackers can use to track users’ browsing habits. The vulnerabilities were found in a tool specifically designed to protect privacy that may have given third parties access to “sensitive” information about users’ browsing habits, the report said. The team has identified five types of attacks that could occur as a result of the vulnerability.
Google reportedly disclosed the flaws to Apple in August last year. In December, Apple vaguely revealed the security breach in a blog post and thanked Google.
Apple has not confirmed whether the vulnerability has been fixed. Apple and Google did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
