9.Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code to be executed. As a result, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other computers or networks to run or replicate. Due to the lack of these functionalities, they cannot be considered viruses. However, cookies may be used for negative purposes. They store information about users’ preferences and browsing history and can be used for Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures. In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site. Because identity protection is very valuable, it is advisable to know the problems that can be caused by cookies. There is a constant exchange of information between the browser and the web site through cookies and if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in this process, the information contained in the cookie may be intercepted. This can happen if the internet connection is made on an unsecured network such as an unencrypted wireless network. Due to their flexibility, cookies are used by most sites, including some of the most popular (Youtube, Gmail, Facebook, etc.). Cookies are therefore unavoidable and disabling them will lead to poor functionality and even the impossibility of accessing certain sites.
