Some site's cookies are not bad as reported

Recommended Posts

Ad-Aware 2007 is reporting the following tracking cookies from Firefox as bad:

 

club.cdfreaks.com - Perfectly regular discussion forum

cdfreaks.com - Perfectly regular tech news site

filelist.org - Bittorrent tracker

 

I think you should consider whitelisting this cookies because they're login cookies to those services.

Hi Joakim!

 

Thanks for the update! I ran a scan having visited foobar2000.org and made sure there was a corresponding cookie on my machine. Ad-Aware didn't pick up the foobar2000.org cookie... :)

 

Could I ask you to post the log file of the scan that picked up the cookie so I can investigate further? Thanks again for your report!

 

Regards

Hi Joakim,

Hi Joakim,

 

After some investigation I can confirm that the foobar2000.org cookie detection is an issue with Ad-Aware 2007 Beta rather than a false positive generated by Ad-Aware 1.06r1. I will pass the foobar2000 cookie issue to the Ad-Aware 2007 development team. I would like to thank you for bringing this Beta version bug to light - reports like this are extremely helpful! :)

 

If you come across any other anomalies, please be sure to report them in the Ad-Aware 2007 forum at http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showforum=55 . Thanks for your input!

 

Regards,

 

Andy
