Security and privacy issues _

Consequently , they cannot be duplicated or replicated to other networks to run or replicate again . Since they cannot perform these functions , they cannot be considered viruses .

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies for deletion during anti -virus/anti-spyware deletion /scanning procedures.

Other security aspects related to cookies

Since identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because through them information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network ( eg an unsecured WiFi network ) .

Other cookie-based attacks involve missetting cookies on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information over unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of personal information protection .
