Threat Post - August 1, 2016

Researchers have found flaws in the Web Proxy AutoDiscovery protocol tied to DHCP and DNS servers that allow hackers spy on HTTPS-protected URLs and launch a myriad of different malicious attacks against Linux, Windows or Mac computers.

With that information, SafeBreach says it’s possible for a hacker to see the entire URL of every site visited even if the traffic is protected with HTTPS encryption.
