From a post at the Logic Users' Group:

For those of you concerned with security, you might want to opt out of Yahoo's "research".

Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo Group users around the net and see what you're doing and where you are going - similar to cookies.

Take a look at their updated privacy statement:

http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/pixels/details.html

About half-way down the page, in the section "Outside the Yahoo! Network", you'll see a little "click here" link that will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping. I strongly recommend that you do this.

Once you have clicked that link, you are opted out. Notice the "Success" message the top the next page. Be careful because on that page there is a "CancelOpt-out" button that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out. Feel free to forward this to other groups.

This is something NEW, not the regular stuff where you just check the boxes.
