The latest article that I have been able to find about Cross-Site cooking was stating that it was possible to set cookie on 2 dots top level domain such as .co.uk.

The mechanism for preventing overly relaxed cookie domain specification seems to be broken in all major browsers.

However this article is dated of 2006. Is this affirmation still true ?

It is believed that browsers can deal with this issue today. However, this is not only the problem of browsers and they are not the general cause of this failure. But to make my answer complete, I would like to direct you to good blog post that is written by Michal Zalewski: http://lcamtuf.blogspot.com/2010/10/http-cookies-or-how-not-to-design.html.
