This is interesting. I didn't realize scumware did this with the cookie. However, I can assure you that the machines I've tested this on do not have any scumware or freeware loaded. It's also easy to check for the existance of a generic cookie by calling a site you own and outputing the cookies sent (which I just did). It definately would be a good way to detect scumware on a browser if it were true.

So, are you trying to defend SI by linking them to scumware?
