    Hi, I usually delete my cookies before I log on to my bank account but recently forgot to do so. After I logged on I noticed that I had some tracking cookies on my PC. Can these steal my passwords? Can someone define the type of "data" these bad cookies are supposed to transmit? Thankyou.

    imperium, perhaps you want to review this 6 part article: How Internet Cookies Work.
