Cookies: Are They Becoming Totally a Threat?

March 3, 2009 at 4:24 pm Leave a comment

Koobface–a “social-networking site” virus–basically works from cookies.  So do many other pieces of badware, at least potentially, even though a cookie may only be a record of places you’ve visited at a particular site.  Give consideration to just clearing your cookies out or (in browser options) keeping them for a very limited amount of time, maybe even a “stealth mode” method of deleting them at the end of each browser session.  At some point, I think cookies will become totally unusable, and I don’t think that point is far away.
