■■■■■ Browser exploit via side channel attack: Researchers have discovered a new side-channel that they say can be reliably exploited to leak information from web browsers that could then be leveraged to track users even when JavaScript is completely disabled.
“This is a side-channel attack which doesn’t require any JavaScript to run,” the researchers said. “This means script blockers cannot stop it. The attacks work even if you strip out all of the fun parts of the web browsing experience. This makes it very difficult to prevent without modifying deep parts of the operating system.”
