EFF: Your Browser Has a Fingerprint

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Browsers#NYT#privacy#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img marshall kirkpatrick Related Posts The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has published results from a study of nearly half a million website visitors’ browsers and concluded that the settings configurations exposed to sites we visit are close enough to unique to identify repeat visitors with a high degree of accuracy even if cookies are deleted.Highly granular version numbers of installed plug-ins and seemingly random orders in lists of installed fonts were the primary offenders. The EFF has concluded that the most viable remedy may be consumer pressure applied to software vendors to change these practices. Even if you’re not particularly concerned about privacy on this level, the findings are quite interesting.Flash and Java were the primary examples provided as identifiers. These plugins expose version levels beyond what is needed for users in order to maximize developer convenience when debugging, the organization says. The EFF’s tests were fairly sophisticated, but the organization says there are already companies selling commercial software that claims to track browser fingerprints.Reasonable Expectations?Readers will need to decide for themselves whether the understanding of privacy found in the report is reasonable by their standards. The report notes that cookies, for example, are valuable as a way to deliver certain features, but suggests that users somehow balance that with privacy concerns. The EFF’s stance on cookies can seem downright antiquated at times, though. “There is growing awareness among web users that HTTP cookies are a serious threat to privacy,” the organization writes, “and many people now block, limit or periodically delete them.”While the ability to visit websites anonymously remains an important part of democratic communication and the preservation of liberty, more contemporary privacy debates tend to focus on sites sharing user data with third parties without consent. None the less, the fact that individual users’ browsers have nearly unique fingerprints is disconcerting. The EFF’s call for software developers to stop using such granular version numbers might be reasonable, or it might be contrary to the core of software development culture. Likewise, the random ordering of installed font lists seems like an indication of the futility of expecting privacy as a casual user of such complex software with so many variables in play.What do you think? Should users demand that browser and plugin software providers account for this dilemma or is the EFF barking up the wrong tree on privacy?last_img read more

J&K ex-Governor N.N. Vohra played his own tune, says BJP leader

first_imgBJP Jammu and Kashmir president Ravinder Raina’s remarks on the former Governor N.N. Vohra and his successor Satya Pal Malik evoked sharp reaction in the Valley on Thursday.In a video that went viral online, Mr. Raina boasts about replacing Mr. Vohra, saying apni hi dafli bajata tha [Would play his own tune]” and said Mr. Malik was “the BJP’s own man.” Ab Jo Governor Aya Hai Woh Hamara Banda Hai [The Governor who has taken over is our man].” The Peoples Democratic Party, once an ally of the BJP, called Mr. Raina’s remarks “ludicrous.” “He has not only undermined the constitutional authority of the State but has also tried to belittle the office of Governor,” general secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura said. The PDP, he said, was of the opinion that the office of Governor is impartial and functions without prejudice or partiality. Meanwhile, Mr. Malik called for giving a renewed push to the “Mission on Delivering Governance” and “Mission on Delivering Development” to bring the State back on course.last_img read more

HC restrains IABF from using India or Indian in name

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court passed an interim order on Thursday restraining Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) from using ‘India’ or ‘Indian’ in its name. Justice Prathiba M Singh also asked IABF, which was in the process of conducting a national sub-junior men and women boxing championship, to inform all the participants that they are not a recognised national sports federation of boxing. The court’s interim order came on a plea by Boxing Federation of India (BFI) seeking permanent injunction against IABF from using word ‘India’ or its natural variations and from representing themselves as a national sports federation for boxing or that it is recognised by Indian Olympics Association, Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs and International Boxing Association (AIBA). Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherAdvocates Hrishikesh Baruah, Parth Goswami and Hemant Phalpher, representing the BFI, submitted in the court that IABF was in the process of conducting national sub-junior men and women boxing championship in Jabalpur and was collecting money from boxers as entry fees. BFI, which claims to be the recognised national sports federation for boxing in India, said IABF was misrepresenting itself as being affiliated with the IOA, which is factually an incorrect statement. Besides IABF, its president Abhishek Matoria and secretary general Rakesh Thakran were also made parties to the suit. The court perused a February 1 letter issued by IABF seeking to conduct the first sub-junior inter zonal men and women national boxing championship 2018-2019 in Jabalpur between March 10 and 13 and between March 12 and 15 respectively.last_img read more
