MSN (hotmail) track browsing habits

MSN has been tracking users’ browsing habits for some time now. It didn’t matter whether a user deleted their cookies, the MSN cookies were still remaining on the system. These “supercookies” were capable of re-creating users’ cookies after people deleted the regular cookies – evercookies anyone? Read Julian’s blog post¬†about the evercookie threat and how you can remove these nasty cookies.

Microsoft has now (August 2011) removed the code that was responsible for re-creating the “supercookies”. Microsoft has also confirmed that the data from the old code has not been shared with anyone outside of their organisation.
