Other security issues related to Cookies

Because all Internet users have the right to protect their online identity, it is advisable to be informed about the possible security risks. Since these files constantly exchange information between the browser and the site you visit, information transmitted through cookies can be intercepted by unauthorized people or programs. For example, this is possible if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted / unsecured network - as is the case for certain Wi-Fi networks.

Other attacks based on cookies may be possible due to incorrect settings of these files on the servers. If a Web site does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to access the information provided by cookies. For these reasons, it is essential to pay particular attention to the settings that protect your personal information online.
