Why does ZoneAlarm offer no protection for "zombie cookie" & "Ever Cookies"??? I only discovered the issue by receiving a security bulletin via email from consumer reports.
I tried to search for a security bulletin on their website, but found nothing. I also tried to contact customer support and was 'greeted' with a less than cheerful desire to provide additional information on the subject.
In researching it more, this appears to be a serious issue for users as the cookies are not readily apparent as they don't appear and are not deleted through the browser. They instead reside within the Flash directory. I was shocked to find 1000+ cookies on my computer as I am careful to delete cookies after my browsing sessions ends.
I am disappointed that Zone Alarm offers no protection from these and I am equally if not more disappointed that this issue is not even mentioned as a possible threat on their site.
