Dear Wiki user,



We have today received a notice from the Indian Computer Emergency Response
Team (notice no. 143/2011) requiring us to disclose the wikipedia pages
opened when each Gmail/Orkut/Blogger/Youtube account was simultaneously open
in other tabs. The above measure is claimed to be in view of national
security and 24 other websites including social networking sites have been
asked to disclose various information by Saturday. We are informing you of
the same so that if you have any objection to us disclosing information to
the government about the same you may take necessary legal action. If
required by you we will be happy to furnish any additional information about
the same.

Does it mean that Wikipedia tracks (is able to track) what other URL's
were open (s.a. in other tabs) while Wikipedia was being browsed ?
Or are they tracking somehow using OpenID, or other shared
user-authentication / SSO tokens etc. ?
And what the heck does the ICERT intend to do with this information...
without a context, looks like a very unusual (stopping short of
calling it "wierd") thing to ask for !
