Michael Chertoff conflating cookie concerns with cybersecurity threats

"The Lesson of Google's Safari Hack"

http://j.mp/OSxVRQ  (WSJ)

   "Some aspects of Google's action fall into that area of concern, but it
    was more than just a simple misuse of data or misleading of a
    consumer. Though not intended as such, the Google hack of Safari looks
    more like the equivalent of a serious cyber intrusion."

Ah!  Now Michael Chertoff is conflating cookies with vast
cybersecurity nightmares.  He may not be a computer expert, but he
certainly knows how to exploit fear.  Chertoff apparently has also
cashed in nicely on the TSA body scanner craze thanks to his role as
former Homeland Security head: http://j.mp/OSygnA (Huffington)
