Another Lawsuit Filed over Zombie Cookies
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.August 25, 2010
Another lawsuit has been filed over the use of so-called zombie cookies, Wired reports. The suit, filed in California's Central District federal court last week, alleges that a large tracking and ad-serving company used Adobe Flash to recreate browser cookies that users had cleared previously. The suit follows two others filed this month by attorney Joseph Malley. Attorneys Mark Anstoetter and Madeleine McDonough of Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP outline
the issues associated with zombie cookies, which first came to light in a report published by University of California Berkeley researchers last year.
