cookies - nothing new

The discussion regarding cookies is old news.

 <http://help.netscape.com/kb/consumer/19981231-1.html>

More info used to be here:

 <http://www.paradise.net.nz/~glineham/cookiemonster.html>

Does anyone know where it went? The URL below gives an email address
for Oliver Lineham <oliver () lineham co nz> but I can't seem to pull up
a Web site for lineham.co.nz.

Oh, wait - here's an article that gives the date when Oliver posted
the Cookie Monster bug to BUGTRAQ:

 <http://webserver.cpg.com/ws/4.2/>

OK, here is the original BUGTRAQ post:

 <3.0.6.32.19981224110919.007c7520 () paradise net 
nz">http://www.securityfocus.com/templates/archive.pike?list=1&date=1998-12-22&msg=3.0.6.32.19981224110919.007c7520 () 
paradise net nz</A>>

Unfortunately, it doesn't contain much other than "visit the Web site
for more details". :( Anyway, IIRC, it's the same problem described in
the Netscape advisory at the top of this message.

Here's a bit of somewhat belated, but still frenzied, hype as well:
