Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users may have had their entire online history siphoned and stored by third-party developers. 谷歌阅读器和火狐阅读器用户的一切在线汗青记录能够都被第三方开辟商盗取并贮存上去。 A prominent security researcher found a popular plugin for the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox was recording everything users did online. 一位闻名的平安研讨员发明谷歌阅读器和火狐阅读器的一个常用插件记录了用户的一切阅读汗青。 The software, which is designed to allow users to customise the appearance of how webpages appear inside the web browsers, has been hijacked by spyware. 该软件运用户可以定制阅读器中网页的出现方法,但它却被特务软件利用了。 The extension, which has more than 1.8 million users worldwide, may have been recording the browsing history of everyone who uses it. 该插件在环球有180多万名用户,(现在)它能够记录了每位用户的阅读汗青。 Worse still, this browsing data could be linked to details that make users identifiable in the real world, making them vulnerable to hackers and blackmailers. 更严峻的是,这些阅读数据能够会衔接到某些信息,从而确认用户的真实身份,而这会使他们很容易遭到黑客和讹诈者们的损伤。 The finding was made by Robert Theaton, a software engineer from San Francisco, who discovered the software, dubbed Stylish, had been recording browser history since January 2017, when it was bought by new owners SimilarWeb. 旧金山的一位软件工程师罗伯特·希顿发明了这一现实,他留意到一个被称为“Stylish”的软件自从2007年1月被新的一切者SimilarWeb(一款市场竞争剖析东西)收买后,就不断在记录用户的阅读汗青。

This allows its new owner, SimilarWeb, to connect an individual with all of their online activity. 这使得其新的一切者SimilarWeb可以经过用户一切的线上运动记录衔接用户。 Those who have created a Stylish account on userstyles.org will have a unique identifier that can easily be linked to a login cookie and text files intended to help users access a website faster and more efficiently. 在“userstyles.org”网站上创立过Stylish账户的人将拥有一个无独有偶的辨认码,这很容易与那些登岸辨认码和文本文档相衔接,而这些登岸辨认码和文本文档是用来协助用户更快地拜访一个网站的。 This means that not only does SimilarWeb own a copy of any user's complete browsing histories, they also own enough other data to theoretically tie these histories to email addresses and real-world identities. 这意味着SimilarWeb不只拥有一切用户完好的阅读汗青,他们还拥有充足多的其他数据,使其从实际上把这些阅读汗青与用户的电子邮件地点及真实身份联络在一同。
