    I'm trying to watch the CJ cookie being set on my machine, to make sure that I'm not being hijacked by any spyware apps, etc. I'm primarily looking at eBay.

    I have a CJ link which goes to the machine. It then redirects to eBay's site. Which cookies should I be looking for?

    I used a software program called Proximitron to capture the HTTP calls when I clicked on the link. There were 2 distinct cookies set when I clicked through:

    How do I interpret these cookies, to make sure that I would get credit for having referred the visitor (me)? Is my PID encrypted? How do I know that the cookie is for 30 days (I'm guessing the "NA-30" encodes this somehow).

    Is this something that people just take on faith? I'd love to be able to see if others are hijacking my cookies from the sites that I visit (in a non-obvious way, like an invisible IFRAME).

    Faith is for church.

    I've always wondered about this myself and would like to know too. - Turns your search box into money.
