Speech Recognition Feature in Chrome Exploited by Spies

Speech Recognition Feature in Chrome Exploited by Spies

Cyber attackers have found a way to use the speech recognition feature in Chrome to spy on ordinary users of the worldwide web. They managed to switch on a microphone using bugs in the Google Chrome browser. The exploit was discovered by one of the developers, who found it when working on a popular JavaScript Speech Recognition library. This allowed the developer to find many bugs in the browser and to come up with an exploit which combines all.

The developer was quick to report the exploit to Google’s security team in private back in September 2013. In less than a week, Google’s engineers have found the bugs, suggested fixes, and in the next five days a patch was ready. By the way, the developer’s find was nominated for Chromium’s Reward Panel.

The strange thing was that as time passed, the fix wasn’t released. When asked why, Google’s team answered that there was an ongoing discussion within the Standards group, to agree on the best course of action. In other words, the company couldn’t decide what to do, though there were not many options.

It’s 2014 already, but Google is still waiting for the Standards group to agree on the correct behavior, while leaving Chrome browser vulnerable. Indeed, all it takes is a user to visit a website exploiting speech recognition to offer some interesting new functionality.

No avatarBut they're your neigbors. You don't have anything (nefarious)to hide so you don't mind your neighbors listening to your private conversations do you?

They're like Mr. Rogers, only they watch you at all times and listen to your conversations and secretly ypass it on to the IRS, DEA, etc. They are fully capable of fabricating evidence, and having you secretly tried in a secret court with secret evidence and a secret confession obtained with cruel and unusal punishment or just secretly "detain" you for an "indefinite" amount of time.

But it's cool, because they do it while singing "Won't you be...my neighbor/target?".

Warwicked avatarTurning and turning in the widening gyre. The falcon cannot hear the falconer. Things fall apart. The centre cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity...Surely some revelation is at hand...But now I know that twenty centuries of stony sleep were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle.

No avatarIt's a quote from the poem "The second coming" by Yeats.

sn3h1t87 avatarIronically, Chrome/Android is suffering the same fate as XP. They are popular and extensible with a convenience-first attitude to security. That might make for cool add-ons to be more available, but it certainly increases the attack surface for malware.

It took years for Microsoft to adopt a security-first model, often to the detriment of usability -- UAC was so annoying when it first came out, and directory virtualization could be such a pain.

Eventually, users will demand more secure platforms.
