I read an article last week in Wired that said that Adobe Flash player uses its own independent cookie system to track your activity on the internet.

I was wondering if this was also the case with the Ubuntu Flash Plugin? And if so how does one stop that.

I believe bleachbit deletes flash cookies. I've never used it nor do I know if it is safe.

Get the Firefox add-0n "BetterPrivacy" ... it will delete those flash cookies at shutdown .
