    Widely used systems such as operating systems and web servers are implemented in unsafe programming languages for efficiency, and system designers often prioritize performance over security. Hence, these foundational systems inherently suffer from a variety of vulnerabilities and insecure designs that have been exploited by adversaries to launch critical system attacks. Two typical goals of these attacks are to leak sensitive data and to control victim systems.

    The "free" Web is powered by a multi-billion dollar online advertising industry. Advertisers track users across the Web to show them targeted advertisements. Professor Shafiq will discuss the scope of online tracking, including its implications on user privacy and government surveillance. He will also discuss current UI research on increasing transparency to empower users to limit online tracking. This lecture is sponsored by the University of Iowa Provost's Office of Outreach & Engagement.

    In the lead-up top the presidential election of 2016, both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were quoted saying "the system is rigged."  They meant very different things, but the as the election grew closer it became evident that hackers, probably Russian, were actively attempting to break into state voter registration databases as well as engaging in an orchestrated "fake news" campaign with carefully curated and well-timed leaks of hacked e-mails.  Conspiracy theories from the left and right pointed to massive voter fraud. What really happened?

    Modern day cybercrime has become a heavy burden on the Internet ecosystem and caused increasing loss to end users, ranging from scam websites to message abuse to compromises of bank accounts. The explosive growth of online services and user-generated data facilitate the engagement in illegal activities. Mitigating emerging threats requires both gathering empirical measurements to understand the operation logistics of attacks and developing practical defense mechanisms.

    In the first part of this talk, I will discuss our research on de-anonymization and inference attacks and privacy risk quantification. First, I will present a novel profile matching scheme that quantifies and shows the risk of the profile matching attack in unstructured social networks (in which similarity in graphical structure cannot be used for profile matching).
