    Always something new. Will be a big boon for the anti-spyware industry as they develop products to counter this.

    Tweaking the settings of the Flash plug-in is nothing new - that's been pretty standard procedure for some time now for other things. Hopefully most people have done that already.

    EDIT: just jogged my memory and found a reference to an earlier article:

    ------------------------------
    Be Cautious With Cookies And... Flash?

    Opera users can change cookie settings as needed with just a few clicks.

    As with all "here's the next exploit" hype, the focus of attention should be in sorting out the information and working to alert people to the precautionary steps to take. This article is pretty good at that. Wait for the anti-spy people to take up the cause with the next product that "you simply must have" to be protected.

    regards,
