Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Cookie visibility and theft, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Security.
- Next, I want us to discuss cookie visibility…and to see how easy it is to steal browser cookies.…When you set a cookie to be stored in a user's browser,…that cookie data is visible to users.…In many browsers, a user can go into the preferences area…and inspect their cookies.…I've noticed recently that some browsers…have decided to make that process harder,…but older versions still make it very easy.…You have to assume that any cookie data that you set…is visible to users.…Cookies can also be stolen…using cross-site scripting attacks.…
