i as many of the members conserned about theyr privacy are using firefox+plugins to block certain coockies or malicios ads for ever being installed or
im sure the suits still have a nice way of tacking us,but its still nice to not be completly naked on the net.
but this monday on MOST of the pages i open i begin to see a small purple rectangular on the upper rght side of the pages that says "google analytics
i really didnt knew what the heck is that, it couldnt be spyware,my pc is more protected then nasa,besides i had so many plugins to protect my privacy
and to not accept certain cookies. well searching..google..i guess its some kinda new webmaster service that allows them to track all your behavior
and what and where you go on the net,somekinda java script cookie,maybe its installed when u even visit google,or installed when u visit a site
supporting it,i dont know if this site uses it. maybe some member that knows more can explain what is this in a more smple way.
but there is a way to block it,or u can atleast try
go to c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc and open the file HOSTS with notepad
write a new line 127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com
and another new line 127.0.0.1 ssl.google-analytics.com
save your changes,now i hope your protected from this ever being installed or connected to theyr server to transmit info.
the host file is simply you write server addresses you like your pc to not connect you.
this problem is URGENT i dont want to see this thread wash down without a comment
