Microsoft announced that Google was also circumventing privacy preference on the Internet Explorer web browser. The news comes in light of the recent discovery that Google was able to bypass security on Apple's Safari web browser and place tracking cookies.

Dean Hachamovitch (of the IE team) reported in a blog post: "the answer is yes: Google is employing similar methods to get around the default privacy protections in IE and track IE users with cookies."

As with the previous cookie loophole, it is likely that Google will cease the practice and that Microsoft will tighten the IE code to stop the practice, but individual users may want to clear their cookies or at least examine them a little closer.
