Find the Cookies in Incognito Mode
However, it has come to light, the existence and finding the cookies in Incognito Mode are now called as “Super Cookies”. Super cookies : files containing identification data even when sailing under the incognito mode.
Vulnerability of Using Incognito Mode of Web browser
The vulnerability is generated when the web pages using HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to increase security while browsing redirected to the HTTPS version of the site instead of the traditional HTTP. However, in this process of change can create the super cookies to generate data that keep the user identification ,even in incognito mode.
Browsers Which get Affected by using Incognito mode
The problem affects Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari especially since under the latter platform can not even delete super cookies. Ironically, Microsoft Internet Explorer is not affected as it has no support for HSTS technology.
Of course, the great responsibility is not the developers companies browsers, but the website owners who decide whether or not to take advantage of this vulnerability. We have reported a few high profile cases where telcos go to the super cookies, allowing frequent visitors identification even when they do not want to be identified.
