Caged Parrots like NSA are piggybacking on advertising cookies to follow you on WWW

National territories or ideals are not owned by citizens, real owners are the glorified crooks. For example, the NSA’s ability to piggyback off of private companies’ tracking of their own internet users is a vital instrument that allows this US agency to trace the data it collects to individual users. It makes no difference if visitors switch to public Wi-Fi networks, use proxies, secure browsers, mobiles, tablets or connect to VPNs to change their IP addresses: the tracking cookie will follow them around as long as they are using the same web browser and fail to clear their cookies.

Slides released by The Intercept give detailed guides to understanding the data transmitted by these cookies, as well as how to find unique machine identifiers that analysts can use to differentiate between multiple machines using the same IP address. Enough said about how spy agencies piggyback on social media account data to find Internet users’ names or other identifying info, and more such info drive home the point that HTTP cookies leave users vulnerable to government and competitor surveillance, since any paying intermediary friend (even murderers or spy agencies) can read the sensitive data they contain.

Cookies courtesy crooks!
