The performance benefits of rel=noopener - JakeArchibald.com

If you have links to another origin, you should use rel="noopener", especially if they open in a new tab/window. Without this, the new page can access your window object via window.opener. Thankfully the origin security model of the web prevents it reading your page, but no-thankfully some legacy APIs mean it can navigate your page to a different URL using window.opener.location = newURL. Most browsers are multi-process with the exception of Firefox (and they're working on it). Each process has multiple threads, including what we often call the "main" thread. This is where parsing, style calculation, layout, painting and non-worker JavaScript runs. This means JavaScript running on one domain runs on a different thread to a window/tab running another domain. However, due to the synchronous cross-window access the DOM gives us via window.opener, windows launched via target="_blank" end up in the same process & thread. The same is true for iframes and windows opened via window.open. rel="noopener" prevents window.opener, so there's no cross-window access. Chromium browsers optimise for this and open the new page in its own process.

Google Partially Patches Flaw in Chrome for Android 3 Years After Disclosure

Google has finally patched a privacy vulnerability in its Chrome web browser for Android that exposes users' device model and firmware version, eventually enabling remote attackers to identify unpatched devices and exploit known vulnerabilities. The vulnerability, which has not yet given any CVE number, is an information disclosure bug that resides in the way the Google Chrome for Android generates 'User Agent' string containing the Android version number and build tag information, which includes device name and its firmware build. This information is also sent to applications using WebView and Chrome Tabs APIs, which can be used to track users and fingerprint devices on which they are running.

FBI Seizes 15 DDoS attacks-For-Hire, Booter, Stresser Websites, 3 Operators Charged

The FBI just saved the Christmas. The U.S. Justice Department announced earlier today that the FBI has seized domains of 15 "DDoS-for-hire" websites and charged three individuals running some of these services. DDoS-for-hire, or "Booter" or "Stresser," services rent out access to a network of infected devices, which then can be used by anyone, even the least tech-savvy individual, to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against any website and disrupt its access.

Over 202 Million Chinese Job Seekers Details Exposed On the Internet

Cybersecurity researcher has discovered online a massive database containing records of more than 202 million Chinese citizens that remained accessible to anyone on the Internet without authentication until last week. The unprotected 854.8 gigabytes of the database was stored in an instance of MongoDB, a NoSQL high performance and cross-platform document-oriented database, hosted by an American server hosting company. In total, the database contained 202,730,434 records about job candidates from China, including candidates' personal information such as their full name, date of birth, phone number, email address, marriage status, and driver’s license information, along with their professional experience and job expectations.

Google DNS Service (8.8.8.8) Now Supports DNS-over-TLS Security

Almost every activity on the Internet starts with a DNS query, a key function of the Internet that works as an Internet's directory where your device looks up for the server IP addresses after you enter a human-readable web address (e.g., thehackernews.com). Since DNS queries are sent in clear text over UDP or TCP without encryption, the information can reveal not only what websites an individual visits but is also vulnerable to spoofing attacks. To address these problems, Google announced Wednesday that its Public DNS (Domain Name System) service finally supports DNS-over-TLS security protocol, which means that the DNS queries and responses will be communicated over TLS-encrypted TCP connections. The DNS-over-TLS has been designed to make it harder for man-in-the-middle attackers to manipulate the DNS query or eavesdrop on your Internet connection. Launched over eight years ago, Google Public DNS, at IP addresses 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, is world's largest public Domain Name Service recursive resolver that most people prefer instead of using default DNS services from their ISPs or carriers.

Google Removes 85 Adware Apps That Infect 9 Million Android Users

Google has removed 85 apps from its Play Store after finding out that they were pushing aggressive, full-screen adware to Android users.

Google fined $57 million by France for lack of transparency and consent

The French data protection watchdog CNIL has issued its first fine of €50 million (around $57 million) under the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law that came into force in May last year. The fine has been levied on Google for "lack of transparency, inadequate information and lack of valid consent regarding the ads personalization," the CNIL (National Data Protection Commission) said in a press release issued today. The fine was imposed following the latest CNIL investigation into Google after receiving complaints against the company in May 2018 by two non-profit organizations—None Of Your Business (NOYB) and La Quadrature du Net (LQDN).

Google Created Faster Storage Encryption for All Low-End Devices

Google has launched a new encryption algorithm that has been built specifically to run on mobile phones and smart IoT devices that don't have the specialized hardware to use current encryption methods to encrypt locally stored data efficiently. Encryption has already become an integral part of our everyday digital activities. However, it has long been known that encryption is expensive, as it causes performance issues, especially for low-end devices that don't have hardware support for making the encryption and decryption process faster. Since data security concerns have recently become very important, not using encryption is no more a wise tradeoff, and at the same time, using a secure but slow device on which apps take much longer to launch is also not a great idea.

1-Click iPhone and Android Exploits Target Tibetan Users via WhatsApp

Besides this, researchers also observed a malicious OAuth application that the same group of attackers used to gain access to its 'victims' Gmail accounts by redirecting them to a decoy page designed to convince them that the app served a legitimate purpose. Among the victims that were targeted by the Poison Carp hackers between November 2018 and May 2019 include the Private Office of Tibetan Buddhist leader the Dalai Lama, the Central Tibetan Administration, the Tibetan Parliament, Tibetan human rights groups, and individuals holding senior positions in their respective organizations.
