Recently I came across something called LSO cookies (read about it, I’m not going to explain them in detail here). Since more and more browsers, virus scanners and security software block cookies, these LSO cookies are a real treat for advertisers and tracking companies for several reason:

* they are difficult to block
* they provide lots of storage (100KB per site)
* they are not removed by your browser, ever
* they work and track you, even with your browsers “privacy mode”
