[Security] - Hidden Flash cookies

Hi All
[quote="Hidden Flash cookies track even opt-out users on web's biggest sites"]
Over half of the most popular 100 websites use secret behaviour-tracking software to monitor users, mostly without their knowledge, and in several cases the software recovers information the user has chosen to delete.
Small pieces of identifying code hidden in Adobe's near-ubiquitous Flash media player can be used to track users' behaviour. The pieces of code behave similarly to 'standard' cookies and are known as Flash cookies.

Anyone wanting to block veys cookies can do with: flashblock.bat and the Read Me
it will work on XP, Vista and 7 and block Flash Silverlight cookies, Made by 4lt3rn1ty on NoDPI
