Because the list that ITP uses stores information about the websites visited by the users, an attacker could create a "persistent fingerprint" that would enable them to follow a user around the web or see their search terms.
The issues, according to a study published by the internet giant, tied to an anti-tracking feature built into the browser and opened a way to track the browsing habits of its users (look at the irony!).
Apple Chief Govt Officer Tim Cook has criticized internet companies for gathering too grand personal files, and final one year Google researchers reported a two-one year prolonged vulnerability in the iPhone maker's tool. It came with a specific aim of protecting Safari browser users from being tracked around the web by advertisers' and other third-parties' cookies.
"ITP will now block all third-party requests from seeing their cookies, regardless of the classification status of the third-party domain, unless the first-party website has already received user interaction", Apple explained.
Researchers from Google's Cloud team have found five unique attack methods which can exploit the discovered vulnerabilities.

The 8GB RAM as standard means the base model will start with 8GB RAM on-board, with variants with more RAM, probably upto 12GB. The Mi 10 will primarily target the flagship market, while Redmi K30 Pro will focus on the entry premium flagship market.
"You would not expect privacy enhancing technologies to introduce privacy risks", said Lukasz Olejnik, an independent security researcher who saw the document.
Intelligent Tracking Prevention has been incorporated as a privacy protection mechanism in Apple's Safari browser since October 2017. Apple said the bugs mentioned in the report were patched in December, but declined to comment further.
This week on Twitter, Google Chrome Engineering Director Justin Schuh tweeted that the actual vulnerabilities have not been fixed, despite Apple's claim. Olejnik said that such privacy vulnerabilities are rare, and "issues in mechanisms created to improve privacy are unexpected and highly counter-intuitive".
Fortunately, Google reached out to Apple in the fall of past year, and a number of the issues discussed in this paper were addressed in Safari 13.0.4 and iOS 13.3, which released in December 2019.
