Default Google: Chrome now protects you from Spectre password-stealing attacks

This is a report from ZDNet:

Google: Chrome now protects you from Spectre password-stealing attacks | ZDNet
Quote:
Chrome 67 for Mac, Windows has just added extra defences against Spectre-style data-stealing attacks.

Google says a new security feature in Chrome should make it harder for malicious websites to use a Spectre-style attack to steal data or passwords from other sites open as tabs in the same browser.

The company has now enabled a security feature called Site Isolation on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS in Chrome 67, the latest version of its browser.

From The Register:

Google's ghost busters: We can scare off Spectre haunting Chrome tabs The Register

Site Isolation keeps pages fully separate on Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS

Google is touting the benefits of a recently rolled out browser security feature called Site Isolation.

Site Isolation has been gradually introduced to users of the Chrome browser over several months, and now Google has officially unveiled this important piece of tech.

With Site Isolation is enabled, Chrome runs a different browser process for each internet domain. Google initially described Site Isolation as an "additional security boundary between websites," preventing malicious webpages in a tab from messing with or spying on tabs and iframes displaying pages from other domains.
