Talk:Zombie cookie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The sites mentioned "ESPN, Google, MTV, Hulu, ABC,MySpace, NBC, YouTube, Yahoo, and Scribd" are co-defendants in a now-dismissed lawsuit against Quantcast. None of the sites were even accused of using zombie cookies directly - they merely integrated with Quantcast, which was at one point using zombie cookies. Quantcast has long since stopped using Zombie cookies so the sentence as stated is entirely inaccurate.

I've removed the mention of sites that use zombie cookies. This article suggest that it is not widespread http://www.informationweek.com/news/security/privacy/229200224?cid=RSSfeed_IWK_All . And looking though Google's privacy policy suggests that they do not do this. If someone wants to add the information back in it needs a citation. Lotu (talk) 19:30, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Blocking Zombie Cookies[edit]

Is there any information available to add to the page about how to block zombie cookies? Are there any movements to find a way to block them? Let99 (talk) 05:56, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
