A Big security loopholes found in Chrome, Firefox and Opera web browsers


Popular web browsers Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera have found a weakness that can put users in trouble. Hackers can cheat you with a trick and you will not even know. China's security researcher Judong Sheng has found that with the help of this trick criminals can show fake web addresses of popular websites. In this way they can steal people's login details and banking information. 

Hackers for this fishing trick are using Punycode. Punycode was brought so that web domains could be registered in languages ​​other than English. For example, if you want to buy a 'Hindi com' domain then for this you need to 'xn--j2bd4cyah0f.com' in Punycode You have to register. Browsers read Punycode (non-ASCII) URLs and convert them into Unicode characters. But now it has come to know that if a user uses only one character of another language, then these three browsers open it in normal characters instead of opening it in the panycode. Judeong wrote in his blog, "Both the domains will look identical to Chrome and Firefox and it will be difficult to make a difference." 

In this way hackers can trap people by making fake websites in the name of popular websites. People will understand the real website and put their details and they will reach the hackers. This threat is only on Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari are not affected by this because they show the right pennycode on the address bar. Avoid hackers such as: In this way hackers can trap people by making fake websites in the name of popular websites. People will understand the real website and put their details and they will reach the hackers. This threat is only on Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari are not affected by this because they show the right pennycode on the address bar. Avoid hackers such as: In this way hackers can trap people by making fake websites in the name of popular websites. People will understand the real website and put their details and they will reach the hackers. This threat is only on Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari are not affected by this because they show the right pennycode on the address bar.
