Do You Yahoo at My Web???

Most of us use the msn.com default homepage and get zapped with more than a dozen cookies as we turn the machine on and check our Hotmail account. It really is informative to check the visible information to check what is passed in the cookies. Where a line is unknown, I’ll just use “line unknown” instead of a bunch of encrypted stuff that I don’t understand. Where I do have an idea, I’ll put it in the second column.

I’ll be skipping a lot of cookies that are meaningless to me so as only to get to the essentials.

Now that we have checked the email and the cookies are carrying my Microsoft identity, my Hotmail name and my machine ID, how about surfing a little porn over at hotteens.com


__utm(a b or z)         Three cookies are set. One for a, b & z.

So our porn habits are measured by Google Analytics and tracked to my microsoft identity, my hotmail name, and my machine ID through my Cookie ID. Now lets see what happens when we click the My Web Button for Yahoo.

Line Unknown
Line Unknown
yahoo.com                 Company ID
1024                           User Class Probably big business
342532096               Ties Yahoo button to hotteens account
32065574                  Ties Yahoo button to hotteens account
29854330                  Cookie ID

Yahoo then asks you to sign in with your yahoo account to put the page in your My Web Folder.


Can anybody deny who they are, what machine was used, and where they went? Unfortunately, anybody that read my first post on this subject knows that I never asked to go to hotteens.com, I was automatically redirected there.
