"Secure" servers leaving cookies on my machine, am I worried about nothing? SOLVED
Hi, this is not a question about security on my machine per se, but rather a more general one. I hope that this is the correct forum.
I was cleaning up my cookies like I regularly do (FF 188.8.131.52, Slackware-current, if that's of interest), when I noticed several cookies that as far as I can tell are from servers I almost exclusively connect to using https. Some even were of the form "secure0.websitename.com" .
My question I guess, is isn't it lax for a secure server to be leaving cookies on your machine? Have I been reading too many scare stories about cookies, or is it one of those "1½ factor security" or "security through insanity" systems they talk about at The DailyWTF.
