Flash Cookies Track Even Privacy-conscious Surfers, Study Finds
By Erik Larkin, PCWorld Aug 17, 2009 2:28 pm

Flash cookies placed by many of the most popular Web sites are being used to track site visitors, even going so far as to re-create http tracking cookies after they're deleted by privacy-conscious surfers.

A new study released by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and other universites found that the Flash cookies, or local shared objects, are used on 54 of the top 100 Web sites, as ranked by Quantcast. The Flash cookies are stored in a different location than regular http cookies, and are not removed if you delete cookies from within your browser. Per the report, "even the ‘Private Browsing' mode recently added to most browsers such as Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3 still allows Flash cookies to operate fully and track the user."

I believe most already know about that (anyone that's read up on flash cookies anyway), but it also gets reset whenever flash is updated ;) (meaning you need to remember to reset it)
