Non-consent Data Retrieval While using Web or Email Services

Jose Martinez Rivera, Luis Medina Ramos, Amir H. Chinaei

Abstract

User’s private data might be secretly retrieved for or against them every time they browse the web or use email services. This study addresses how these services could secretly retrieve such data. While users may appreciate these techniques as a means of protecting them from hacking, fraud, etc., they may have some privacy concerns against them. We have implemented two approaches to demonstrate how such data retrievals help web and email services to properly identify a user. We have also conducted extensive experiments to measure the success rates of our approaches. Results show 86.217% successful identification for web services and 81.1% successful identification of emails that were attempted to be sent anonymously.
