Fist there is news of a bot-net bigger then storm dubbed Kraken which you can read more about here, here and here

And Then, there is info filtering out. albeit a little after the fact about Phorm, which if it work as described here would be a major threat to the average users privacy and even to those that used cookie blockers as it hijacks white listed cookies.

Guess it is time for someone to start working on a Phorm stripper add-on for Firefox that would identify the hijacked cookies and strip the Phorm tag off of them.

It is late so I have not had a chance to look into to this as deeply as I’d like to. I’ll write more on it in the coming days.
