    I got this in a newsletter.
    Some may find it interesting, I thought that I would share it.


    Flash's Shared Object technology may allow your
    browsing to be tracked without cookies. This risk is greatest
    with older Flash versions but even the latest version is not
    watertight.

    All users make sure they have the latest
    upgrade and change their Flash security settings to ensure
    that Flash at least asks for permission before storing
    information.

    Full instructions can be found at the Macromedia
    site here.

    How do I prevent third-parties from using Flash to track me across
    websites?
