And here we have Schrodingers cat dilemma. If this comment is true, it has some worth to it. If it is false, it means that many Slashdotters' time is wasted over nothing. Maybe even surpassing the money-limit damage you just mentioned. The things a posting may trigger (pun intended).

+ - Oracle Releases Massive Security Update->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Oracle has pushed out a massive security update, including critical fixes for Java SE and the Oracle Sun Systems Products Suite. Overall, the update contains nearly 170 new security vulnerability fixes, including 36 for Oracle Fusion Middleware. Twenty-eight of these may be remotely exploitable without authentication and can possibly be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password."

There could be a P2P-like-sharing of cookies from those sources. Got to watch out for special cases (login stuff or after viewing private content). You could swap out cookies after every page visit (given certain pages).

I am still wondering why my browser would care for cookies from those domains when being on a whole different site. Or limits their lifetimes better (sure google maps can set a cookie when visiting a website, but after closing the page it should be gone).

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
