Updated cookie-alert software released for IE 5.5 Privacy from Companies9/1/2000; 10:35:45 AM 'Microsoft issued a software patch to the public today for its latest Internet browser that tells customers when third-party Web sites try to place cookies on their computers for tracking purposes. ...'The software within IE 5.5 gives consumers detailed information about cookies and tells them whether the cookie is coming from the Web site they are visiting or from a third-party site such as advertising networks DoubleClick or Engage. These companies often use cookies to track the performance of ad campaigns or to deliver targeted ads based on personal preferences.'If you're using IE5.5, I think I'd recommend getting this. I don't use it, I still use 5, so I don't know anything about it directly.Good to see Microsoft responding to security concerns.
