Researchers Expose Cunning Online Tracking Service That Canít Be Dodge

Quote:
Researchers at U.C. Berkeley have discovered that some of the netís most popular sites are using a tracking service that canít be evaded ó even when users block cookies, turn off storage in Flash, or use browsersí ďincognitoĒ functions.

The service, called KISSmetrics, is used by sites to track the number of visitors, what the visitors do on the site, and where they come to the site from ó and the company says it does a more comprehensive job than its competitors such as Google Analytics.

Firefox with the Noscript extension should prevent the javascript from running unless you allow the site hosting the script to run the script.

I'm probably in the minority in that I don't object to some advertising. I do however object to advertisers running their crapletts on my system either javascript or flash. Serve up an image link. I might actually see the ad.

If they were so concerned about user privacy, why did they implement this crap in the first place? Thank goodness they were caught with their pants down!!

If they were so cunning how did they get caught? I can't believe people are so into watching what other people are doing you really ought to grab a life when all you can do is watch someone Else's life. Pretty sad..
