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.

Blocking Zombie Cookies
I found this IT company blog post that talks about zombie cookies and suggests some freeware called CCleaner to remove these third-party cookies. Not sure if this would be a valid source or not.
