I’ll keep it short and sweet.  Was browsing this new twitter thing that all the kids are playin’ with and I saw an link to this story: You Deleted Your Cookies?  Think Again.  Short version: You can create cookie-like objects with flash, that:

  1. Don’t get deleted from your machine when you clear cookies
  2. Can be used to re-spawn browser-based cookies if you delete them
  3. Can do a whole bunch of annoying stuff that you probably don’t want done to your machine
  4. To disable this on your browser, go to the following URL: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html
    and uncheck “Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer”
    Keep in mind, you’ll need to do this on each of your browsers
