3. Cookies provide website owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users, so they can make them even more effective and accessible to users.

What is a cookie?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on a user’s computer, mobile device or other equipment from which the Internet is accessed.

The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (contains no software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive). A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver. Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

What kind of information is stored and accessed through cookies?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The web server will recognise the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that improves the web browsing experience (e.g.: setting the language in which you want to access a site; keeping a user logged into a webmail account; online banking security; keeping products in your shopping cart).

Security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run themselves. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate themselves again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can however be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on many other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly flag cookies for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. In general, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site. Other security issues related to cookies As identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because cookies constantly transmit information back and forth between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorised person intervenes in the data transmission path, 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 (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings 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 through unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorised access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies.

Because of their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most popular and widely used sites including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are a few tips that can ensure that you don’t surf without worrying about cookies:

1. Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a level of cookie security that is comfortable for you.

2. If you don’t mind cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set monthly expiry dates for storing browsing history and personal access data.

3. If you share access to your computer, you may consider setting your browser to delete your individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is one option to access sites that place cookies and delete any visiting information when you close your browsing session.

4. Install and constantly update anti-spyware applications.

Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of attacks on websites. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks exploit weaknesses in older versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and biggest sites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the internet with confidence.

How can I stop cookies?

Utilizatorii isi pot configura browserul sa respinga fisierele cookie. Users can configure their browser to reject cookies. Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/view online advertising. It is possible to set your browser not to accept cookies or you can set your browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments. All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings.
