Google to fix location data leak in Google Home, Chromecast • Krebs on Security
Brian Krebs:
<p>Craig Young, a researcher with security firm Tripwire, said he discovered an authentication weakness that leaks incredibly accurate location information about users of both the smart speaker and home assistant Google Home, and Chromecast, a small electronic device that makes it simple to stream TV shows, movies and games to a digital television or monitor.

Young said the attack works by asking the Google device for a list of nearby wireless networks and then sending that list to Google’s geolocation lookup services.

“An attacker can be completely remote as long as they can get the victim to open a link while connected to the same Wi-Fi or wired network as a Google Chromecast or Home device,” Young told KrebsOnSecurity. “The only real limitation is that the link needs to remain open for about a minute before the attacker has a location. The attack content could be contained within malicious advertisements or even a tweet.”

…When Young first reached out to Google in May about <a href="https://www.tripwire.com/state-of-security/vert/googles-newest-feature-find-my-home/#.WyfDEMLoy-g.twitter">his findings</a>, the company replied by closing his bug report with a “Status: Won’t Fix (Intended Behavior)” message. But after being contacted by KrebsOnSecurity, Google changed its tune, saying it planned to ship an update to address the privacy leak in both devices. Currently, that update is slated to be released in mid-July 2018.</p>


The accuracy by this method is to within 10 metres - rather than the 2-3 miles that a typical IP address alone offers. If they get your location, plus an IP, plus some cookies, they've got your identity forever. "They" being advertisers who will want to pursue you on and off the net. Though how does Google Home "go" to a page, exactly?

Krebs suggests putting your IoT devices on a separate intranet from everything else. Quite a struggle.

Rethinking GPS: Engineering Next-Gen Location at Uber
For example, if the location is shadowed, then the likelihood of a high SNR is low. The overall likelihood of a given location, based on the satellite SNRs, is the product of the likelihoods corresponding to the different satellites. By doing this over a grid of possible locations, we obtain a likelihood surface—or heat map—of possible receiver locations, based on satellite signal strengths alone. We call this procedure probabilistic shadow matching.
