Apple, Firefox tools aim to thwart Facebook, Google tracking
Anick Jesdanun:
<p>Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in what’s becoming an escalating privacy arms race.

New protections in Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox browsers aim to prevent companies from turning “cookie” data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites.

Lance Cottrell, creator of the privacy service Anonymizer, said Apple’s effort was particularly significant, as it takes aim at a technique developed by tracking companies to override users’ attempts to delete their cookies.

Safari makes these protections automatic in updates coming Tuesday to iPhones and iPads and a week later to Mac computers. Firefox has similar protections on Apple mobile devices and is rolling out them out to personal computers in the coming months.

To get the protections, you’ll have to break your habit of using Google’s Chrome browser, which by some estimates has more than half of the worldwide browser usage. Safari and Firefox have less than 20 percent combined.

Even then, Safari and Firefox can’t entirely stop tracking. For starters, they won’t block tracking when you’re using Facebook or Google itself. Nor can they help much when you use phone or tablet apps, unless the app happens to embed Safari, as Twitter’s iPhone app does.

But Will Strafach, a mobile security expert who is designing data security tools for phones, said imperfect protection is better than no protection. He notes that burglars can still break down a door, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bother locking it.</p>

By the way, iOS 12 was released on Monday evening.

Delete Site Specific Cookies in Safari on iOS
You can delete specific cookies for any website from the Safari web browser in iOS fairly easily. Though the setting to do so is buried a bit, it’s super easy to use and provides a lot of control, offering a complete list of all cookies stored on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and allowing you to edit or remove any cookies on an individual basis. The process is the same in all versions of iOS, as we will detail below.

Apple's Safari Falls For New Address Bar Spoofing Trick
An unpatched vulnerability in the Safari web browser allows an attacker to control the content displayed in the address bar, a security researcher discovered. The method enables well-crafted phishing attacks that are difficult to spot by the average consumer.
The bug is a race condition type and it is caused by the browser permitting JavaScript to update the address bar before a web page loads completely.
Apple is taking its time to release a fix
Security researcher Rafay Baloch was able to reproduce the vulnerability only in Safari and Edge web browsers.
He informed the makers of the two browsers about the risk, but only Microsoft responded with a patch on August 14, as part of its regular release of security updates.
Apple received a report about the bug on June 2, and 90 days to fix it before public disclosure. The three-month period expired more than a week ago and there is no patch for Safari.

Ghostery Lite - Exclusively for Safari Users - Ghostery
Hey Ghostery fans,
We are excited to announce the upcoming release of Ghostery Lite, a streamlined version of Ghostery for users on Safari that provides our world-class privacy protection with a fraction of the CPU footprint. Ghostery Lite is a new-and-improved privacy extension that now provides both ad and tracker blocking for fast, simple and safe browsing.
Why now?
Apple recently announced that with the macOS Mojave release (sometime in late 2018), Safari will take a more aggressive stance on privacy and security. This release will include:
Cookie partitioning with Storage Access API requires user consent for 3rd party cookies on each website and purges all cookies after 30 days
Bounce trackers and collusion trackers are detected and purged of their web data
Origin URLs are scrubbed to prevent trackers from receiving personally identifiable information (PII)
Social widget trackers are blocked
Anonymized system configuration to prevent fingerprinting
This is a big move in terms of increasing privacy protection for Apple users and we’re happy to be able to support these initiatives.
