Can I use other sites cookies on my site?


Recommended Posts

oh son of a bitch, myspace is so fucked up!

Many sites that have user authentication store your username/name in a cookie...

they suckzor too

cookies should (almost) never contain user data

You should stop logging into these forums then. ;)

haha i like that :) i see no issue with storing the user name in a cookie, sure having there open pass, phone# or house address is wrong, but an ID or Display name, is nothing wrong.

Would it be possable to use myspace's cookie that remembers your first name when you log into my webpage? So that a site you have never been to knows your first name?

Use a little scripting to do the same function, only set its output to a text file/log instead of an alert box and then retrive the data later. Maybe script it in PHP? Not sure how you would call the cookie from another domain though.

How would he do this then? Would he create a frame for myspace.com(hidden) within his page and then call the cookie data and it will return it for both his and the myspace site?

I thought XSS attacks would have to be where you insert the code to a script onto the target site, ex: he would have to insert some javascript into a myspace.com page that calls the script from another site, say in a comment box, etc. How can he do the reverse from his site?
