The Cookies section allows you to monitor cookies and their attributes

Use Cases

  • Discover cookies that may pose a risk due to lacking security attributes. Cookies that lack security attributes can potentially be used to escalate attacks on the users of your site.

  • Identify which hosts are setting cookies.


During the crawling process, the scanner collects all cookies that are issued in server responses.


Risk is assigned by verifying that:

  • Medium ( Yellow): The "secure" attribute is missing on an HTTPS cookie, or the HttpOnly attribute is missing from a session cookie.

  • Low ( Green): No significant risks are associated with the cookie.

Cookies rated Medium risk will create issues.

We recommend fixing Medium risk issues immediately.


Cookies can be monitored for changes by toggling their monitor status on the List page. If a change is detected it will trigger a website-cookie-monitor-change event so you can be immediately notified.
