Decade Old KDE Bug Fixed

hypnosec (2231454) writes "How long does a bug take to get resolved? A week? A month? A year? Well, a bug prevalent in the KDE libraries since 2002 has finally been resolved after a decade it has been revealed. The bug was present in the “Reject Cross-Domain Cookies” feature of KDE Libraries. Thiago Macieira noted in the KDE Libraries Revision 974b14b8 that he observed that his web cookies were being forgotten following a kded restart. Macieira observed that “mCrossDomain member variable in the cookies” had a value of 127 and mCrossDomain being a Boolean this value doesn’t make any sense at all."
