    Mapping a web browser to GPS coordinates via router XSS + Google Location Services without prompting the user... Here is a proof of concept on obtaining *accurate* GPS coordinates of a user sitting behind a web browser via router XSS. The router and web browser themselves contain NO geolocation/GPS data. This is also *not* IP based geolocation.

    This is just for wireless routers whose MACs are in Google's geolocation database, right?

    How is Google going to get geolocation info re my non-wireless router?
