What is a cookie?
An Internet cookie (also called “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie”, or simply cookie), is a small piece of data composed from letters and numbers, sent from a website and stored in the user's web browser, either his phone, computer or other terminals, while the user is browsing.  The cookie is installed when a web server makes a request to a browser (eg Internet Explorer , Chrome ) and is completely "passive" ( does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive) .
 
A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and cookie’s value or content. Moreover, the life cycle of a cookie is limited; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns on the web site that is associated with that webserver.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you, may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
 
There are 2 main cookie types:
- Session cookies –this type of cookie will only last for a browser session, at the end of which it will expire. Each browser session will start when the user opens the browser window and finishes when he closes the browser window (Eg. After a visit to a website or a log in/log off session on a social network)
-Persistent cookie – These cookies keep your preferences or actions across a site (or across different sites) to be remembered. It has a longer lifetime than a session cookie and lasts for the period of time specified in the cookie (this will vary from cookie to cookie). This type of cookie will not be deleted when you close your browser window and will be stored on your device. It will be activated every time you visit a website which created that particular persistent cookie.

Why are the cookies important for the Internet? 
Cookies are the focus of the efficient operation of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to each user preferences and interests.

Denial or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive or see online advertising - but it will no longer take into account your preferences and interests, evidenced by browsing behavior. Examples of important uses of cookies (that do not require user authentication through an account): Content and services tailored to user preferences - categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public services and government sites entertainment and travel services. Offers tailored to users' interests - remembering passwords, language preferences (Eg. displaying search results in Romanian). Remembering the filters settings regarding Internet content to protect children (family mode options, safe search functions). Creative delivery rate limiting - limiting the number of views an advertisement for a particular user on a website. Providing more relevant advertising to the user. Measurement, optimization and features analytics - such as confirming a certain level of traffic to a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user arrives on a website (Eg. through search engines directly, or from other websites etc.). Websites develop these analyzes to improve their browsing experience, for the benefit of the users.
 
Security and confidentiality issues
Cookies are not viruses! They use type plain text formats. There are comprised of chunks of code so it cannot be enforced neither can auto - run. Consequently, you cannot duplicate or replicate them on other networks to replicate it to run again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Since they store preferences and information about users' browsing history, both on a particular site and several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti -spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly marks cookies to be deleted in removal proceedings / scanning anti-virus / anti -spyware.
Generally browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, validity period and erased automatically after the user has visited a particular site.
 
Other security aspects related on cookies
Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, one should know what problems can be generated by cookies. Because through them is constantly transmitted information in both directions between a browser and a website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (Eg. unsecured WiFi network).
Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong setting of cookies on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, the attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through insecure channels. Attackers then use the information for unauthorized purposes to access certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of protecting personal information.
