Today in my tweet stream, someone pointed out this site and I wanted to blog about it. The site is called stayinvisible.com and offers a quick view of some of the data that is available to a web site or an attacker who can lure someone to a website.
The site displays a dump of a variety of common data that you might not be aware of that is leaking from your browser. There are also tips for hardening your browser settings and operating system against some of the methods used to dump the data.
If nothing else, it might just provide an “ah ha” moment for folks not used to the information security space. Give it a try and let us know what you think of it.
We have no association with the site, its content or the folks who run it. We just thought it was interesting. Your paranoia may vary. 🙂
What is your browser leaking? A quick post with a useful link for awareness & “ah ha” moments. http://t.co/PWD9I2Ls
Unfortunately, stayinvisible.com testing is incomplete, and they give bad advice.
Until they do improve, we recommend http://ifconfig.me/ and similar sites. They’re perhaps not as pretty, but at least they do show what’s given up.
