[New-bugs-announce] [issue2193] Cookie Colon Name Bug

BM report at bugs.python.org
Tue Feb 26 03:27:23 CET 2008

New submission from BM:

According to David M. Kristol, only comma, space and semi-colon are 
forbidden in the cookie Name. However, Python's Cookie.py rejects a 
colon too. At the same time, Java Cookie in the servlet implementation 
allows a colon and Perl too.

The fix would be to add a colon symbol into _LegalChars variable.
