SYSTEMS AFFECTED

PROBLEM

	Derek Johnson posted :
	

	If a user sets the option
	  

	\"Prompt to allow cookies to be stored on your  

	machine\" 

	

	I have found that this can be bypassed in ME by  local  Javascript  code
	directly setting a cookie.
	 

	A request to disable the storing of  cookies  is  honored  but  not  the
	option to prompt before storing them.
	 

	Hence it is insecure to set this option with Javascript enabled.  It  is
	no known if this is fixed  by  any  combination  of  patches  issued  by
	Microsoft.
	

	

SOLUTION

	disbale cookie in javascript
