How to Prevent Cross-Site Leaks (XS Leaks) Attacks on Modern Web Browsers

Protecting your files and your privacy is a very serious matter. As you may have read here on Hacker News, there are apparently 14 new types of data leakage amongst different sites.

The modern web browsers affected currently include Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera, and Tor Browser.

The bug uses these browsers to allow a malicious website to glean personal data while you go about browsing other websites, allowing these hackers to see much of your personal info without you even knowing about it.

So, how to prevent this? Recommendations are to deny all messages/events from any website unless you are sure it is trustworthy. Restrict cookie, data, and other access websites may have to your info.

It is difficult to prevent completely as the problem lies on the browser/website’s end and its tracking allowances, however you can mitigate it by using extra secure browsers such as Mojeek, Searx, Swisscows, Qwant, DuckDuckGo, Brave, and others.

This is why we at Dokkio always maintain the utmost security in your files so you can rest safe in knowing that all of your files are always private and stay personal to you.
