    Descriptive info: .. All About Cookies is a free resource to help marketers and consumers understand the issues surrounding the use of cookies.. What is an IP address?.. What is a Cookie File/Folder?.. What is Protocol?.. What are Pop Up ads?.. What is a cookie?.. What is a browser?.. Managing Cookies.. What are Web Beacons, otherwise known as Web Bugs, and how do the work?.. What is a Clear GIF?.. Surf Safely.. I have heard that cookies are bad for privacy - is that true?.. Privacy Concerns.. New European laws.. What is a 3rd party adserver.. What else can I do to protect myself when online?.. How do I protect my computer from Viruses?.. Privacy Alliance.. Welcome To All About Cookies.. org.. What are cookies in computers?.. Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories.. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions.. Due to their core role of enhancing/enabling usability or site processes,.. disabling cookies.. may prevent users from using certain websites.. Cookies are created when a user's.. browser.. loads a particular website.. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file.. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server.. Computer Cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded.. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.. For Managing cookies for different browsers.. see here.. Standard uses for browser cookies.. Website servers set cookies to help authenticate the user if the user logs in to a secure area of the website.. Login information is stored in a cookie so the user can enter and leave the website without having to re-enter the same authentication information over and over.. More information.. Session Cookies.. are also used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server's pages.. By default, web pages really don't have any 'memory'.. Cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn't have to remember or start navigating the site all over again.. Cookies act as a sort of bookmark within the site.. Similarly, cookies can store ordering information needed to make shopping carts work instead of forcing the user to remember all the items the user put in the shopping cart.. Persistent or tracking Cookies.. are also employed to store user preferences.. Many websites allow the user to customize how information is presented through site layouts or themes.. These changes make the site easier to navigate and/or lets user leave a part of the user's personality at the site.. For Information on session and persistent and tracking cookies,.. Cookie security and privacy issues.. Cookies are NOT viruses.. Cookies use a plain text format.. They are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor are they self-executing.. Accordingly, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks to execute and replicate again.. Since they cannot perform these functions, they fall outside the standard virus definition.. Cookies CAN be used for malicious purposes though.. Since they store information about a user's browsing preferences and history, both on a specific site and browsing among several sites, cookies can be used to act as a form of spyware.. Many.. anti-spyware.. products are well aware of this problem and routinely flag cookies as candidates for deletion after standard virus and/or spyware scans.. See here for some.. privacy issues and concerns.. The way  ...   out option for website visitors, websites will need to specifically gain the consent of their visitor and they must Opt In to be able to store cookies on their computer or other devices.. This is expected to be difficult to manage and enforcement will more than likely be done subtlely and with encouragement rather than with the threat of fines and penaltys.. What does the new law say?.. The new requirement is essentially that cookies can only be placed.. on machines where the user or subscriber has given their consent.. 6 (1) Subject to paragraph (4), a person shall not store or gain.. access to information stored, in the terminal equipment of a subscriber.. or user unless the requirements of paragraph (2) are met.. (2) The requirements are that the subscriber or user of that terminal.. equipment--.. (a) is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the.. purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and.. (b) has given his or her consent.. (3) Where an electronic communications network is used by the.. same person to store or access information in the terminal equipment.. of a subscriber or user on more than one occasion, it is sufficient for the purposes of this regulation that the requirements of paragraph (2).. are met in respect of the initial use.. “(3A) For the purposes of paragraph (2), consent may be signified by a.. subscriber who amends or sets controls on the internet browser which.. the subscriber uses or by using another application or programme to.. signify consent.. (4) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the technical storage of, or.. access to, information--.. (a) for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a.. communication over an electronic communications network; or.. (b) where such storage or access is strictly necessary for the.. provision of an information society service requested by the subscriber.. or user.. More information on the new changes can be found.. here.. Key tips for safe and responsible cookie-based Web browsing.. Due to their flexibility and the fact that many of the largest and most-visited websites use cookies by default, cookies are almost unavoidable.. Disabling cookies will lock a user out of many of the most widely-used sites on the Internet like Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and others.. Even search settings require cookies for language settings.. Here are some tips you can use to ensure worry-free cookie-based browsing:.. Customize your.. browser's cookie settings.. to reflect your comfort level with cookie security or use the cookie cleaner included in.. Abine's free Privacy Suite.. If you are very comfortable with cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you may want to set long expiration time frames for storing your personal access information and browsing history.. If you share access on your computer, you may want to set your browser to clear private browsing data every time you close your browser.. While not as secure as rejecting cookies outright, this option lets you access cookie-based websites while deleting any sensitive information after your browsing session.. Install and keep antispyware applications updated.. Many spyware detection, cleanup applications, and spyware removers include attack site detection.. They block your browser from accessing websites designed to exploit browser vulnerabilities or download malicious software.. Make sure your browser is updated.. If you haven't already, set your browser to update automatically.. This eliminates security vulnerabilities caused by outdated browsers.. Many cookie-based exploits are based on exploiting.. older browsers' security shortcomings.. Cookies are everywhere and can't really be avoided if you wish to enjoy the biggest and best websites out there.. With a clear understanding of how they operate and how they help your browsing experience, you can take the necessary security measures to ensure that you browse the Net confidently.. Privacy *.. |..

  • Title: Todo sobre cookies ordenador - Cookies de sesión, cookies persistentes, Cómo Activar / Desactivar / administrar las cookies
    Descriptive info: Todo sobre las Cookies es un recurso gratuito para ayudar a los comerciantes y los consumidores comprender los problemas relacionados con el uso de cookies.. ¿Qué es una dirección IP?.. ¿Qué es un archivo de cookie / carpeta?.. ¿Qué es un protocolo?.. ¿Qué son los anuncios pop up?.. ¿Qué es una cookie?.. ¿Qué es un navegador?.. Galletas de Gestión.. ¿Qué son las balizas web, también conocidos por web bugs, y cómo hacer el trabajo?.. ¿Qué es un GIF claro?.. He oído que las cookies son malas para la intimidad - ¿es eso cierto?.. ¿Qué es un servidor de anuncios 3 ª parte.. ¿Qué más puedo hacer para protegerme cuando esté en línea?.. ¿Cómo puedo proteger mi computadora de virus?.. Bienvenido a All About Cookies.. ¿Qué son las cookies en los ordenadores?.. También conocidas como cookies de navegador o cookies de seguimiento, las cookies son pequeños archivos de texto, a menudo encriptados, que se ubican en los directorios del navegador.. Los desarrolladores de páginas web los utilizan para permitir a sus usuarios navegar con más facilidad y desarrollar ciertas funciones.. Debido a su papel central a la hora de aumentar e incluso permitir ciertos procesos de los distintos sitios web, desactivar las cookies puede hacer que los usuarios no utilicen ciertas páginas web.. Las cookies se crean cuando el navegador de un usuario carga una página concreta.. Esta página envía información al navegador, que crea entonces un archivo de texto.. Cada vez que el usuario regresa a la misma página, el navegador recupera este archivo y lo envía al servidor de la página.. La página web que el usuario está visitando no es la única que crea las cookies, sino que también lo hacen otras webs que desarrollan anuncios, herramientas u otros elementos presentes en la página que está siendo cargada.. Esas cookies regulan cómo deben aparecer los anuncios o el funcionamiento de las herramientas y otros elementos de la web.. Para administrar las cookies de los distintos navegadores, ir aquí.. Usos habituales de las cookies de navegador.. Los servidores web configuran las cookies para ayudar a autentificar al usuario si éste ingresa en una zona segura del sitio web.. La información de registro se almacena en una cookie de forma que el usuario pueda entrar y salir de la página sin tener que volver a introducir su información de identificación una y otra vez.. Más información.. El servidor también utiliza las cookies de sesión para almacenar información sobre la actividad del usuario en la página, para que los usuarios puedan volver con facilidad al lugar donde abandonaron las páginas del servidor.. Por defecto, las páginas web no tienen en realidad ningún tipo de "memoria".. Las cookies le dicen al servidor qué páginas mostrar para que el usuario no tenga que recordarlas o volver a empezar a navegar por todo el sitio hasta encontrar donde se quedó.. Las cookies son una especie de marca páginas en el sitio.. De forma parecida, las cookies pueden almacenar la información requerida para hacer que los carritos de la compra online funcionen y que el usuario no tenga que recordar todos los artículos que metió dentro del carrito.. Las cookies permanentes o de seguimiento también se utilizan para almacenar las preferencias del usuario.. Muchas páginas web permiten al usuario personalizar cómo quiere que se le presente la información mediante diseños o temas distintos.. Estos cambios hacen que sea más fácil navegar por el sitio de acuerdo con la "personalidad" del usuario en el sitio en cuestión.. Para obtener información sobre las cookies de sesión o de seguimiento, mira aquí.. La seguridad de las cookies y las cuestiones de privacidad.. Las cookies NO son virus.. Las cookies tienen  ...   la tranquilidad mental absoluta de que tus archivos están seguros.. Otras amenazas relacionadas con el uso de cookies.. Dado que la protección de la privacidad está muy valorada y es un derecho de todo usuario de internet, vale la pena estar protegido frente a las amenazas que las cookies pueden plantear.. Puesto que las cookies se transmiten de ida y vuelta entre el navegador y el sitio web, si un enemigo o una persona no autorizada se interpone en la transmisión de datos, la información recibida por las cookies puede ser interceptada.. Aunque es bastante raro, esto puede suceder si el navegador se conecta al servidor utilizando una red no encriptada como una conexión WiFi abierta.. La seguridad en internet solamente es posible si usas de forma habitual un programa de protección antivirus.. Visita nuestra sección de protección antivirus.. Otros ataques relacionados con las cookies están vinculados con la explotación de configuraciones defectuosas de cookies en los servidores.. Si una página web no obliga a los navegadores a utilizar exclusivamente canales encriptados, los atacantes pueden usar esa vulnerabilidad para hacer trampas a los navegadores y conseguir que envíen información por canales no seguros.. Los atacantes desviarán entonces los datos delicados para fines indeseados.. Es importante elegirla protección antifraude y robo para proteger tu información personal.. Trucos clave para una navegación web con cookies segura y responsable.. Debido a su flexibilidad y al hecho de que muchas de las webs más grandes y visitadas utilizan cookies por defecto, las cookies son prácticamente inevitables.. Desactivar las cookies haría que un usuario no pudiera acceder a la mayoría de los sitios usados de forma masiva en internet, como YouTube, Gmail, correo Yahoo y otros.. Incluso los buscadores necesitan las cookies para los ajustes de idioma.. Aquí hay algunos consejos que pueden servirte para conseguir una navegación web segura utilizando cookies:.. Personaliza los ajustes de cookies de tu navegador para conseguir un nivel en el que te sientas cómodo con la seguridad de las cookies o utiliza el limpiador de cookies incluido en la Suite de Privacidad gratuita de Abine.. Si te resultan muy cómodas las cookies y eres la única persona que utiliza tu ordenador, puede interesarte elegir largos plazos de duración para que las cookies almacenen tu información personal de acceso y tu historial de navegación.. Si compartes el acceso a tu ordenador, puede interesarte ajustar tu navegador para eliminar los datos privados de navegación cada vez que cierres el navegador.. Aunque no es tan seguro como rechazar el uso de cookies, esta opción te permite acceder a páginas web que necesitan cookies para funcionar al mismo tiempo que destruyes toda té información delicada después de cerrar sesión con tu navegador.. Instala y mantén actualizadas las aplicaciones antispyware.. Muchos programas de detección de spyware, aplicaciones de limpieza y limpiadores de spyware incluyen la detección de sitios potencialmente peligrosos.. Así, bloquean el acceso de tu navegador a los sitios web que han sido diseñados para aprovechar la vulnerabilidad del navegador para descargar software malicioso.. Asegúrate de que tu navegador está actualizado.. Si no lo has hecho ya, configura tu navegador para que se actualice automáticamente.. Esto eliminará la vulnerabilidad de la seguridad propia de los navegadores no actualizados.. Muchos exploits que utilizan las cookies se aprovechan de los fallos de seguridad de los navegadores anticuados.. Las cookies están en todos los sitios y en realidad no se pueden evitar si deseas disfrutar de los mayores y mejores sitios web existentes.. Con una comprensión clara de cómo funcionan y cómo te ayudan a mejorar tu experiencia en la navegación, puedes tomar las medidas de seguridad necesarias para asegurarte que navegas por la red de forma confidencial..

En raison de leur réle essentiel pour améliorer/activer l'utilisabilité/l'ergonomie ou le traitement des sites, désactiver les cookies peut empécher les utilisateurs d'utiliser certains sites web.. Les cookies sont créés lorsque le navigateur d'un utilisateur charge un site web spécifique.. Le site web envoie des informations au navigateur, puis ce dernier crée alors un fichier texte.. A chaque fois que l'utilisateur revient sur le même site web, le navigateur extrait et envoie ce fichier vers le serveur du site web..

Par défaut, les pages web n'ont pas réellement de mémoire.. Les cookies disent au serveur quelle page afficher à l'utilisateur afin que ce dernier n'ait pas à s'en souvenir ou qu'il n'ait pas à reparcourir tout le site.. Les cookies agissent comme un "marque-page" sur le site.. De la même manière, les cookies peuvent stocker des informations de commande nécessaires pour faire fonctionner les paniers d'achat au lieu d'obliger l'utilisateur à se souvenir de tous les articles qu'il a placé dans son panier.. Les cookies, qu'ils soient persistants ou de suivi, sont également utilisés pour stocker les préférences de l'utilisateur..

La sécurité sur internet n'est atteignable que si vous utilisez régulièrement un programme de protection antivirus.. Consultez notre section sur la protection antivirus.. D'autres attaques liées aux cookies impliquent d'exploiter des systémes de configuration erronés pour les cookies sur des serveurs.. Si un site web n'avise pas les navigateurs de n'utiliser que des canaux cryptés, les attaquants profitent de cette vulnérabilité pour tromper ces navigateurs afin qu'ils envoient des informations sensibles sur des canaux non sécurisés..

Protecting Your Computer from Unwelcome Intruders.. When you’re online, you expose your vulnerability to malicious virus that have been growing in virulence and ferocity over the last few years.. These program codes have gone beyond mere annoyances with the worst kinds disabling your PC, but they have become portals for remotely perpetuating more sinister activity that can clandestinely hack into sites, mount denial of services or steal confidential and personal data for fraudulent financial gain at your expense.. Are these virus serious enough to cause losses? Among home PC users, you may think having to reinstall your OS after a virus or malware has brought it down is not really expensive as you lose just a day or two to reinstall your programs and rebuilding files, consider that in a business, you could actually lose millions.. Just ask ChoicePoint when it took a $6 million charge in 2005 after cyber criminals hacked into their systems and stole sensitive data from thousands of customers.. Or the credit card processor CardSystems Solutions which may yet go out of business from major security breach at the company's Tucson, Arizona, operations center.. In a recent consumer survey among security breach victims, people don't take lightly the loss of their data.. More than 60% of respondents indicated their plans to terminate business relationships with a company that lost the data they entrusted to them.. In 2004, rootkits were a relatively obscure form of Trojans meant to infect Unix computers.. But by 2005, rootkits have become a mainstream security threat after Sony BMG Music Entertainment shipped a few million CDs that contained a rootkit among its copy protection scheme.. Within a few months, Sony recalled the CDs, but it was too late, According to security experts, rootkits attacking Windows PC were here to stay.. The.. 2011 Norton Cybercrime Report.. reveals that there were 431 million global cybercrime victims who lost $388 billion in real money losses and computer time.. This is a lot more compared to the estimated $288 billion in revenues from the black markets for cocaine, heroin and illegal drug trades combined.. For sure, not all of these losses were incurred due to Trojans, worms, viruses, rootkits and malware.. But when you consider that roughly 4.. 3% of cybercrimes involve damages to PC resulting from online downloads of infected content over the internet, you are looking at a computed $17 billion in annual losses due to malware and virus infection.. What can I do to protect myself from computer viruses and Trojans?.. These days, practically everyone's online, downloading and exchanging files, and developers are in such a hurry to get their Web sites up or their files out that checking for a nasty bug is more of a courtesy than a requirement.. If you're not careful, your computer can end up with a nasty virus that makes your files act oddly, crashes your computer, pops up bizarre messages, or worst of all, destroys your operating system.. A computer virus is the most subtle of computer problems.. It usually loads itself into your computer system when you run a program to which it has attached itself.. From the computer system, it'll then reproduce itself, much like a biological virus would, by attaching copies of itself to other programs on your hard drive.. What it does then depends on the malevolence of its creator.. Some viruses are nothing more than a practical joke.. They may bring up a message like "Merry Xmas" or melt your display.. Most of them though, either start destroying your system or your files immediately or on a date specified by their creators like the much-publicized Michelangelo virus, which erases important pieces of your system on March 6.. "Trojan horse" programs are similar to viruses in their effect on your system, but they can't reproduce themselves.. They're usually a program disguised as something you might want to download onto your computer for instance, a rogue, modified version of PKWare's PKZIP utility.. But when you run the new program you just found,  ...   you don't keep it updated, you might was well be completely unprotected.. Prevention.. Like sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), computer viruses existed prior to the popularity of the Internet, but as with the sexual revolution of the '70s, viruses have flourished with the widespread sharing of information.. And, much like the efforts to control STDs, controlling computer viruses is to be done through education and practicing safe hex (a play on words which means to perform certain measures to protect your computer).. 1.. Be sure do a full back up of your system on a regular basis.. The best way to clean up an infected file is to replace it with an original non-infected file.. Not to mention the grief a current back up will save if a virus takes your system completely down.. It's also a good idea to keep more than one set of backup in case the current one is infected before the virus is detected.. 2.. Always use an anti-virus software program, one with both an on-demand and an on-access scanner.. You'll want to look for one that has a fairly complete database of viruses and that is updateable.. New viruses are produced daily, so it's important to have software that can detect the latest threat.. Be sure to read the manual and follow the directions of the software program to ensure it's protecting you properly.. Also, consider buying and using two different brands to be doubly protected.. See our review of anti-virus programs.. 3.. Update the virus database in your anti-virus program regularly (each month or by the direction of the manufacturer).. 4.. On a PC, change the CMOS setting of your boot up process from booting first on the A drive (floppy) and then on the C drive (hard drive) to just booting on the C drive.. This will not only speed up your boot up process but also completely eliminate the risk of infecting your hard drive with an infected floppy disk..

Please note: an infected non-bootable floppy disk can just as easily infect your hard drive as would an infected bootable one.. 5..

You have to download and launch an infected file before it will spread.. Therefore, do not launch any unsolicited executable files sent via e-mail.. 8.. Using an updated anti-virus program, scan all new software for viruses before installing them on your hard drive..
