The Cookie Defense

Add one more reason not to delete cookies on your computer

Add one more reason not to delete cookies on your computer. A Texas man claims he was online when his wife, who had a restraining order, reported him lurking around her house, CNET has the report.

The man’s defense was built around a CD containing the cookies and online records showing visits to the IRS Web site as well as those for Home Depot and Lowe’s. Ultimately, the cookie defense didn’t hold up because it was said that the cookies could have been altered by resetting the computer’s clock to reproduce results. The case is being appealed, and possibly his lawyer will get records from the ISP or other sources to corroborate the evidence.
