IN AUGUST 2009, WE DEMONSTRATED THAT POPULAR WEBSITES WERE USING “FLASH COOKIES” TO TRACK USERS. SOME ADVERTISERS HAD ADOPTED THIS TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE IT ALLOWED PERSISTENT TRACKING EVEN WHERE USERS HAD TAKEN STEPS TO AVOID WEB PROFILING. WE ALSO DEMONSTRATED “RESPAWNING” ON TOP SITES WITH FLASH TECHNOLOGY. THIS ALLOWED SITES TO REINSTANTIATE HTTP COOKIES DELETED BY A USER, MAKING TRACKING MORE RESISTANT TO USERS’ PRIVACY-SEEKING BEHAVIORS.
