Cookie tracking networks
    #329779 - 05/30/01 04:43 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

Lots of sites leave cookies on your machine so they can follow you around the internet. http://www.idcide.com/pages/per_intro.htm have a plugin for IE 5.01 which allows you to monitor and disable such networks.

Lets see if thats what I meant....

What IS on YOUR Harddrive?  :confused:

Expiring minds want to know!

This was simply a test...wanted to see how to write that URL so I could freak some folks out on a forum a long time ago, and far far away. :cool:

Hmmm...nope. This forum software seems to want to automatically insert the "http" in any URL you use....so maybe if I type it in by hand that wont happen?

Nope, a cookie is just an id tag so when you return to a site.

This is correct, but a bit misleading. You don't actually have to return to a site directly... it can be something as simple as an image tag from a site. By fetching the image you pass back the cookie which can then be stored along with the referer tag, time, date, etc and thus keep track of when/where you are going... of course this only works for sites that participate by linking back to the original site that issued the cookie.
