Dear ISP, I am not a target market


Modify The Phorm Cookie?

Couldn't Phorm's monitoring be spoilt by having the client machine modify their cookie to some random value every couple of seconds (a short script springs to mind)? Any attempt to track activity based on what they think your anonymous ID would be pointless, and their ad server wouldn't know who you were to send targeted ads to.

Or have I got it wrong?
