      Description

      One of my clients has noticed that in IE7 that if you visit a page, bookmark it, then logout, you can still go to the bookmark and see the page.
      Their words:
      We have weird security issue here and only related Internet Explorer. This is very critical BUG!

      1) Open IE (Does not matter which version on which version of OS)
      2) Goto Alfresco site
      3) Once you are logged in, bookmark that page
      4) Click "logout".
      5) Open bookmark page you bookmark on step 3
      6) You can see the page you bookmark without logging in.

      The problem is that IE appears to be caching the page and re-serviing it after the user has logged out. Is it possible to set a meta-tag or some other fix that would inform the browser not to cache these pages?
