I’ve lost my cookies!

Some days ago I read an article (a link is on the Breadcrumbs tab on the right of my blog about Super Cookies). I didn’t think to check my machine for these super cookies and did not pay close attention to the lines that said:

GNU-Linux: ~/.macromedia

Sure enough …

amrith@amrith-laptop:~$ find . -name *.sol 2>/dev/null | wc -l
141
amrith@amrith-laptop:~$

Hmmm …

amrith@amrith-laptop:~$ rm `find . -name *.sol 2>/dev/null `
amrith@amrith-laptop:~$ find . -name *.sol 2>/dev/null | wc -l
0
amrith@amrith-laptop:~$

Much better. And my flash player still works. Let’s go look at some video …

amrith@amrith-laptop:~$ find . -name *.sol 2>/dev/null
./.macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/settings.sol
./.macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/#s.ytimg.com/settings.sol
./.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/CZRS8QS7/s.ytimg.com/soundData.sol
./.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/CZRS8QS7/s.ytimg.com/videostats.sol
amrith@amrith-laptop:~$

Time to fix this sucker …

amrith@amrith-laptop:~$ tail -n 1 .bashrc
rm -f `find ./.macromedia -name *.sol 2>/dev/null`
amrith@amrith-laptop:~$
