E il problema sarebbe Spotlight?

Verizon apparently created this mechanism to expand their advertising programs, but it has privacy implications far beyond those programs. Indeed, while we’re concerned about Verizon’s own use of the header, we’re even more worried about what it allows others to find out about Verizon users. The X-UIDH header effectively reinvents the cookie, but does so in a way that is shockingly insecure and dangerous to your privacy. Worse still, Verizon doesn’t let users turn off this “feature.” In fact, it functions even if you use a private browsing mode or clear your cookies. You can test whether the header is injected in your traffic by visiting lessonslearned.org/sniff or amibeingtracked.com over a cell data connection.

Una funzione disattivabile dall’interfaccia utente trattata come un cookie non standard che ignora le sessioni di navigazione privata ed è non ripulibile con i sistemi convenzionali (aka quelli alla portata dell’utente standard).

Come dicevo, potenza di fuoco implica responsabilità…

P.S. Anche Lucio Bragagnolo la pensa in maniera molto simile. Mi fa piacere essere in ottima compagnia (e numerosa).
