Default Evercookie: the cookie that never crumbles.

Quote:
Newer and niftier caching methods can store vastly more information, and bake it into the browser for good. Some even obscure the fact that the browser is storing such data. Samy Kamkar, previously known as the accidental detonator of a MySpace worm affecting over a million people a few years ago, has begun compiling a list of such ruses. His Evercookie site currently describes 13 distinct methods for a server to pass a token that will be reactivated whenever a browser revisits the same server. Evercookie itself is a JavaScript programming library that produces "extremely persistent cookies" able to identify a user even after he has rid the browser of the standard sort. It does this by caching data in several types of storage mechanisms in the local browser at once. Moreover, if the user fails to clear every single one of these caches, evercookie will clone the one leftover crumb and use it to refill all the emptied jars.
More here.

The Everlastingcookiestopper.

Did cookies ever serve any real purpose, aside from storing login data or preferences.

I think some are used for marketing. Doing things like tracking what sites you visit and stuff.

Shopping cart information, path through the site (how you got to where you got to), and things clicked along the way. Though it really depends on the domain setting the cookie.

A nice information source for advertisers.

This new evercookie would probably be more useful what Noctis said, marketing. Not to mention, I'm sure some mean people could utilize this to do something viral.

I'm a privacy supporter, all privacy-invading elements almost always can be used in a negative way, in this case hackers.

I'll be waiting for a cracked browser that can find and block these things once this kind of webcode becomes common.
