PM80035: COOKIE SET FOR ANONYMOUS PAGES VIOLATES COOKIE LAW
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
While browsing on anonymous portal pages, WebSphere Portal sets a cookie called "DigestTracker" to allow for a full refresh of cached resources (e.g. when pressing Ctrl-PF5 in the browser). This cookie, however, violates the European cookie law. Please note: This cookie does not track personal information and is used only for cache invalidation. Still, the European cookie law considers it "dangerous", which of course, it is not.
A code fix for this issue is integrated into the WebSphere Portal & WCM Combined Cumulative Fix 20 (PM78581) for Portal 188.8.131.52 and into the WebSphere Portal & WCM Combined Cumulative Fix 20 (PM78582) for Portal 184.108.40.206 available from Fix Central: 220.127.116.11: http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent =ibm~WebSphere&product=ibm/WebSphere/WebSphere+Portal&release=7. 0.0.1&platform=All&function=aparId&apars=PM78581 18.104.22.168: http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent =ibm~WebSphere&product=ibm/WebSphere/WebSphere+Portal&release=7. 0.0.2&platform=All&function=aparId&apars=PM78582 You might need to type or paste the complete address into your Web browser.
This APAR makes the DigestTracker configurable. It can be disabled by setting the following configuration parameter in the WAS Admin Console > Resources > Resource Environment > Resource Environment Providers > WP ConfigService: digest.tracker.enabled = false This will, of course, mean that the end user can no longer trigger a complete refresh of the displayed content.
