Although rare, this can happen if the browser connects to a server by using an unencrypted network (e.g.: an unsecured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong setting of the cookies on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, the attackers can make use of this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information via unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for purposes of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of protection of personal information.
