Super Cookies

On Friday democratic senators announced plans to seek an investigation into Verizon Wireless’s use of dreaded “super cookie” after finding evidence these unique tracking codes could be used to track devices and thus people. With current usage levels this could potentially impact over 100 million devices. The fact that these super cookies are being used with no control by the end user should scary every end user and parent to the core!

Whom outside of Verizon has access to these codes? Are any data brokers selling a feature that would link super cookie to personal data for tracking habits?
