  • Baidu's and Don'ts: Privacy and Security Issues in Baidu Browser

    This report describes privacy and security issues with Baidu Browser, a web browser for the Windows and Android platforms. Our research shows that the application transmits personal user data to Baidu servers without encryption and with easily decryptable encryption, and is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution during software updates via man-in-the-middle attacks. Listen to Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert’s interview with BBC Newshour, which begins at 18:45 minute mark in the podcast. Read Deibert's blog post on the report.
