8. Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies are the focal point of the efficient Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites unusable.
Denying or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising – just that it will no longer be able to keep track of your preferences and interests highlighted by your browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies which do not require authentication of a user through an account:
-Content and services tailored to user preferences – product categories and services.
-Offers tailored to the interests of users – retaining passwords.
-Retrieve Child Protection Filters for Content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions).
-Limit ad serving frequency – limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site.
-Providing more relevant advertising to the user.
-Measurement, optimization, and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user reaches a website (eg through search engines, directly from other websites etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.
9. Security and privacy issues
Cookieurile NU sunt virusi! Ele folosesc formate tip plain text. Nu sunt alcatuite din bucati de cod asa ca nu pot fi executate nici nu pot auto-rula. In consecinta, nu se pot duplica sau replica pe alte retele pentru a se rula sau replica din nou. Deoarece nu pot indeplini aceste functii, nu pot fi considerate virusi. Cookie-urile pot fi totusi folosite pentru scopuri negative. Deoarece stocheaza informatii despre preferintele si istoricul de navigare al utilizatorilor, atat pe un anume site cat si pe mai multe alte siteuri, cookieurile pot fi folosite ca o forma de Spyware. Multe produse anti-spyware sunt constiente de acest fapt si in mod constant marcheaza cookie-urile pentru a fi sterse in cadrul procedurilor de stergere/scanare anti-virus/anti-spyware. In general browserele au integrate setari de confidentialitate care furnizeaza diferite nivele de acceptare a cookieurilor, perioada de valabilitate si stergere automata dupa ce utilizatorul a vizitat un anumit site. Alte aspecte de securitate legate de cookie-uri: Deoarece protectia identitatii este foarte valoroasa si reprezinta dreptul fiecarui utilizator de internet, este indicat sa se stie ce eventuale probleme pot crea cookieurile. Pentru ca prin intermediul lor se transmit in mod constant in ambele sensuri informatii intre browser si website, daca un atacator sau persoana neautorizata intervine in parcursul de transmitere a datelor, informatiile continute de cookie pot fi interceptate. Desi foarte rar, acest lucru se poate intampla daca browserul se conecteaza la server folosind o retea necriptata (ex: o retea WiFi nesecurizata). Alte atacuri bazate pe cookie implica setari gresite ale cookieurilor pe servere. Daca un website nu solicita browserului sa foloseasca doar canale criptate, atacatorii pot folosi aceasta vulnerabilitate pentru a pacali browserele in a trimite informatii prin intermediul canalelor nesecurizate. Atacatorii utilizeaza apoi informatiile in scopuri de a accesa neautorizat anumite site-uri. Este foarte important sa fiti atenti in alegerea metodei celei mai potrivite de protectie a informatiilor personale.
Tips for safe and responsible cookie-based navigation.
-Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level for you on cookie security.
-If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set expiration dates to store your browsing history and personal data.
-If you share your computer access, you can consider the browser setting to delete individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access sites that place cookies and to delete any visitor information when closing the browsing session.
-Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.
Many of the applications for detection and prevention of spyware include the detection of attacks on sites. 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 cookies attacks are exploited by exploiting the weaknesses of the old versions of browsers. Cookies are everywhere and can not be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and greatest websites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so you can browse with confidence on the internet. Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make some sites unfeasible or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean you will not receive / see online advertising anymore. A browser setting is possible for cookies to be disallowed, or you can set your browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments. All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in your browser’s „options” or „preferences” menu.
