As five security researchers from Belgium and the U.S. are claiming, there are eight methods through which these mitigation services can be bypassed. The techniques of obtaining a websites origin IP address rely on hackers searching through historical...

---------------------------------------------
Previously, I have been able to demonstrate that certain clients could be differentiated from other network traffic. Specifically, that meant discriminating SuperFish, PrivDog, and GeniusBox from mainstream browsers when making HTTPS connections, and generating IDS signatures based on these findings to assist network administrators in being able to identify problematic hosts without requiring access to either endpoint. I have now expanded this technique to improve the accuracy of the...
