Unpatched Apple’s Safari web browser allows tracking of users browsing behavior

Researchers from Google have discovered multiple security vulnerabilities in Apple Inc’s Safari web browser.

These vulnerabilities allow the tracking of users’ browsing behavior, reported the Financial Times.

These coding flaws were found in a tool specifically designed to protect privacy and could have allowed third parties to obtain sensitive information about browsing habits of users, said the report.

Alphabet Inc’s Google Inc had reported the vulnerabilities to Apple in August 2019.

In a blog post in December 2019, an Apple engineer disclosed, the company had fixed the flaws disclosed by Google researchers.

On Wednesday, Apple’s spokesman confirmed that the flaws found by Google were patched in 2019.
