Without assigning Flash, or Adobe, any absolute position on a moral
scale, I was deeply surprised to find that eg. 100K at a time
(unlimited total) can be deposited by this programme and NOT wiped by
usual cookie removal or affected by normal cookie settings.
These can, like cookies, be used to track your browsing, collect data
about your computer, and who knows what else. They can even reset
the volumes for sound.
I just didn't know if my lack of knowledge was the "norm" or whether
this has remained hidden from the vast majority of us....
