Re: need advice on adtmt cookie

As far as I can tell, admt is a name of an ad-delivery network, and the admt
that McAfee is detecting is the name of the tracking cookie that it uses.
As far as risk goes, I'd say it is no more risky than any other tracking
cookie.  Delete it if you want, but it hasn't really caused any issues for
me.

Since using the virtual software McAfee web and email scanner I have
noticed a lot of blocks of the adtmt cookie (seen as an unwanted
program) but see alot of these blocks on FaceBook. I have googled but
only seem to find "bad", "how to get rid of adtmt.exe" ect. Could
someone shed light on the security risk of this? If I am blocking it
because I am surfing through the McAfee web scanner what is happening
or what are folks open to who see this or click it?
