    Thumbs down Firefox add-on ShowIP - privacy concerns

    FYI...

    Firefox add-on ShowIP - privacy concerns
    - http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2012...irefox-add-on/
    May 1, 2012 - "A popular Firefox add-on appears to have started leaking private information about every website that users visit to a third-party server, including sensitive data which could identify individuals or reduce their security... What the add-on's description doesn't say is that since version 1.3 (released on April 19th 2012) it has also sent - unencrypted - the full URL of sites visited using HTTPS, and sites viewed in Private Browsing mode, to a site called ip2info .org. The user never realises that the data has been shared with a third-party, unless they use special tools to monitor what data is being sent from their computer... The full URL of -every- webpage visited is sent to the Germany-based ip2info .org website, using unencrypted connections. In addition, the add-on has no warning that sites you visit might be disclosed, no privacy policy small print explaining its behaviour, and no apparent way to opt-out of the data-sharing... And who appears to have registered the domain? A Berlin-based link marketing firm. Hmm...
    Update: Mozilla has rolled the version of ShowIP they make available on their add-on site back to 1.0. They say they are working with the developer on correcting the issue. Hopefully in future their review process will flag privacy issues like this one to prevent users' data being potentially exposed."
