What is a Cookie?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, made up of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, the mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet.

The cookie is installed by a web-server-issued request to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the hard disk user drive).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the cookie’s lifetime is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with the webserver.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

There are 2 major categories of cookies:

1. Session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser to store them until the user exits the respective website or closes the browser window (eg when logging in / logging in to a webmail account or social media).

2. Persistent cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depends on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies include those placed by a website other than the one the user visits at that time – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously. to store a user’s interests so that they are delivered as relevant to users as possible.

What are the benefits of cookies?

A cookie contains information that links a web-browser (user) and a particular web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services , for example: online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.

What is the life of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website, and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website ( permanent hours). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

What are cookies placed by third parties?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties / providers (eg news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of the respective website. Third-party providers must also comply with the law of the site owner and the privacy policies of the site owner.

Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the focal point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require user authentication through an account):

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences – categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.
  • Offers tailored to users’ interests – password retention, language preferences (eg displaying search results in Romanian).
  • Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search features).
  • Measurement, optimization and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what kind of content is viewed and how a user reaches a website (eg through search engines, directly, from other websites). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.

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 self-executing. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ browsing 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 are constantly flagging cookies for deletion in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures.

Generally, 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 aspects related to cookies:

Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what problems cookies may create. Because through them the information between the browser and the website is constantly transmitted in both directions, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the 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 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. The attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible cookie-based browsing

  • Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.
  • If you share computer access, you may consider setting the browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is a way to access websites that place cookies and delete any visit information at the end of your browsing session.
  • Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.
  • Many spyware detection and prevention applications include site attack detection. 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 of the cookie-based attacks are made by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.
