What is a "cookie"?

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

The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web-server to a browser (ex: Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user's hard drive)

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and content or the value of the cookie. Moreover, the duration of the existence 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 the respective webserver

The cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet


There are 2 large categories of cookies:

  • Session cookies-they are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser for it to memorize them until the user comes out of that website or closes the browser window (e.g. at the time of logging/delogation on a webmail account or on social networks).

  • Persistent cookies-They are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (and generally depends on the preset lifetime for the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user visits at the time-known as "third party cookies" (cookies placed by third parties)-which can be used anonymously to memorize a user's interests, so as to deliver advertising as relevant to users

Security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They're not made up of pieces of code so they can't be executed nor can they self-run. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes.

In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, period of validity and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security aspects related to cookies:

Since identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because through them they are constantly transmitted in both directions information between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the transmission of the data, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted.

Although very rare, this if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network)

Other cookie-based attacks involve the wrong settings of cookies 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 via unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for purposes of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of protection of personal information.
