Researchers: Browsers' Private Modes Leak Data

Computerworld - Browsing in "private mode" isn't as private as users think, a researcher said today.

"There are some traces left behind [by all browsers] that could reveal some of the sites that you've been to," said Collin Jackson, an assistant research professor at the Silicon Valley campus of Carnegie Mellon University. Jackson, along with three colleagues from Stanford University, will present their findings later today at the Usenix Security Symposium in Washington, D.C.
