BBC News: It is easy to expose users’ secret web habits, say researchers. “Two German researchers say they have exposed the porn-browsing habits of a judge, a cyber-crime investigation and the drug preferences of a politician. The pair obtained huge amounts of information about the browsing habits of three million German citizens from companies that gather ‘clickstreams’…. The data is supposed to be anonymised, but analysis showed it could easily be tied to individuals.”
