Deanonymize Tor Users by Ultrasound Cross-Device Tracking

The attack that the research team put together relies on tricking a Tor user into accessing a web page that contains ads that emit ultrasounds or accessing a page that contains hidden JavaScript code that forces the browser to emit the ultrasounds via the HTML5 Audio API.

If the Tor user has his phone somewhere nearby and if certain types of apps are on his phone, then his mobile device will ping back one or more advertisers with details about his device, so the advertiser can build an advertising profile on the user, linking his computer with his phone.

The idea behind this, using software to get a computer to emit something that is then picked up by a nearby receiver, has been around for a very long time. I think I read an article where they got the RAM to transmit data via emitting radio frequencies.
