Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what issues the Cookies can create. In order to transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person interferes with the data transmission path, the information contained in Cookie can be intercepted. This can happen, for example, if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (such as an unsecured WiFi network).
Other Cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to fool browsers to send information through insecure channels. Attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
