Flash LSO cookies (Local Shared Objects)

Recommended Posts

Hello there. I just want to inform you about an important privacy-improvement to Ccleaner.

 

Few have heard about Flash LSO cookies (Local Shared Objects), but they are important to cleanse out if you take your privacy seriously. That backdoor provides websites a way to workaround basic cookie and history cleaning. But that's not all. Your privacy is compromised even with other people whom you share the computer with. By simply going to Adobe Storage control panel, anyone can see which website you were visiting (considering these website are using LSO). You can check it easily yourself by going to:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/document..._manager07.html

 

For further information please visit

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Shared_Object (includes information on where the Flash LSO cookies are stored)

- http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/articles/lso/

 

 

Best regards

Haarek

 

Thanks for providing the world with great free utilities! :-)

But many have heard about it, including the CCleaner developers hence why CCleaner has cleaned flash cookies for some time now ;)
