As part of a Facebook-funded effort, a team of US researchers has developed a new cyber-security tool that discovered 11 previously unknown Internet browser security flaws.
The 11 vulnerabilities identified by the researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology’s college of computing have been confirmed and fixed by the browser makers.
The team included Ph.D. students Byoungyoung Lee and Chengyu Song, along with Professors Taesoo Kim and Wenke Lee which received $100,000 (roughly Rs. 64,96,009) from Facebook to continue their research and increase its impact to make the Internet safer.
