View Full Version : Cookie Protector or Scrambler Application?.
May 17th, 2006, 09:08 AM
I was wondering if anyone could please give me some possible suggestions if any programs exist to help on this.
But I currently use Firefox browser. And i have personal details saved on both stored Cookies and saved form entries and passwords etc contained in my browser profile.
And after reading about some horror stories about some malicious websites stealing your cookies I was wondering if there is such a thing as an easy to use but non overly invasive cookie scrambler and protector for me to use alongside my firefox broweser to protect me from any possible malicious theft of my personal cookies while browsing the net.
I currently use Kasperky AV 5 and Online Armor and Admuncher so i am not sure if i get this protection from these. But if not are there any good applications i could use to help with this role of protecting my firefox cookies and stored username/password information contained in this browsers profile.

Using Tools pull-down, select Options
Click on Privacy tab
Click on Settings... tab
Check All boxes (or ones you want to protect) and Clear private data when closing Firefox
Ok to exit Clear Private Data window
Ok to exit Options window
Then, Exit Firefox instead of using Close
Upon exit from Firefox, it will then prompt you to clean private data that was checked

Thanks but the problem is, is i want to perminantly keep and still use all my cookies for my browser.
Also quite a few sites use it to recognise you, such as Rapidshares Premium account that i use.
What i want is to still use and store cookies at my will but have them securley guarded from theft. And scrambled (encypted?) so if someone does manage to gain access to them and view or even steal them they are pointless and useless to them as they are scrambled or encrypted.
I thought that with the amount of ingenious secrurity application writers i assuemed there must be an application to do this feature somewhere.
Thanks for your reply though

Have a look at Roboform. It may suit your purpose.

I googled for information about "cookie scrambler" and got some obsolete references to "Internet cookie scrambler" at a SourceForge project that is no longer. After browsing at some of the links, here is some background reading and code, and finally both a free and paid for product. I also found that MS has implemented encryption of cookies on some of their servers, but otherwise found nothing else useful:
Bulletproof persistent cookies to increase security

Encrypting Cookies to prevent tampering
Finally found a free version of Cookie Cooker here:
Please post back on your experience with either of the above as I would be interested to know how it goes, as I'm sure others would.
