Web Server HttpOnly Cookies Not In Use

Medium

Synopsis

The remote server does not adequately protect data stored with cookies

Description

Based on the HTTP 'Cookie' header, PVS has determined that the remote server is not using the 'HttpOnly' cookie setting. By not using this setting, client side script can access the cookie. This can allow attackers to access cookies with potentially confidential data.

Solution

Configure your web server or application to use the 'HttpOnly' tag.
