Google Chrome flaw puts privacy at risk

A security vulnerability in Google Chrome and all browsers that run the Blink browser engine could enable malicious actors to uncover private data in Facebook and other platforms. A potential attacker could use side channel methodology to abuse filtering functions in websites to deduce information such as age, gender, likes and location history of a Facebook user, for example, by using audio and video HTML tags to generate requests to the target site and then monitoring the progress events generated by these requests.
