World’s most popular websites recording your every keystroke move

Researchers at Princeton University have found that over 480 globally popular websites are keylogging data and sending it to third-party servers. Some of the most popular and heavy-trafficked websites in the world were found running third-party scripts called “session replay” scripts, that can track users’ every letter typed and every click and more which in turn were sent to third-party servers across the globe.

Commenting on the news is Javvad Malik, security advocate at AlienVault, who said:

Often developers will reuse code, or scripts in order to facilitate rapid delivery or to meet specific business demands. Unfortunately, there often isn’t always enough time to fully assess the impact of such code in production environments, and so something intended to better understand customer behaviour can have the unintended consequences of capturing all keystrokes.

It highlights the importance of good security testing and rigour through all stages of development. In these types of scenarios, the onus is on the enterprise to ensure public-facing apps do not contain any unexpected surprises, as there is little the average customer can do to detect this kind of activity, or protect against it.

OK stay calm, your keystrokes are being recorded
