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, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet.

The cookie is sent by a request issued by the web-server on which the site is hosted, to the user's browser (Ex: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome etc.) and is completely "passive", meaning that it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user's hard drive.

A cookie is made up of 2 parts: the name and content or value of the cookie and is uniquely associated with the domain on which the site that sent it to the user's browser is hosted (eg: connectdentistry.com).

Security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use a plain text format. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or self-run. As a result, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Since 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 multiple 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.

In general, browsers have integrated 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.

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

Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on servers.

If a site 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 in order to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
