iHub researchers Gunes Acar and Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius (& their coauthors from KU Leuven and University of Lausanne) won the prestigious CNIL-Inria Award for Privacy Protection.
The study titled ’Leaky Forms: A Study of Email and Password Exfiltration Before Form Submission’ (USENIX Security’22) showed how email addresses and passwords entered into web forms are collected by online trackers on thousands of websites even before users submit a form. Thanks to the extensive disclosures made by the authors, many websites and third-party services have since been updated to prevent similar password and email leaks.
