Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. 

Most browsers have built in privacy settings that provide differing levels of cookie acceptance, expiration time, and disposal after a User/Customer/Visitor has visited a particular site. Backing up your computer can give you the peace of mind that your files are safe.

Other cookie-based threats

Since identity protection is highly valued and is every internet users, it pays to be aware of what threat cookies can pose.

As cookies are transmitted back and forth between a browser and website, if an attacker or unauthorized person gets in between the data transmission, the sensitive cookie information can be intercepted.

Although relatively rare, this can happen if the browser is connecting to the server using an unencrypted network like a non-secured WiFi channel.

Internet security is only attainable if you regularly use an anti-virus protection program. Other cookie-based attacks involve exploiting faulty cookie-setting systems on servers. If a website doesn't require browsers to use encrypted channels only, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending sensitive information over insecure channels.

The attackers then siphon off the sensitive data for unauthorized access purposes.

New Laws for the use of cookies and other technologies that store online user information.

On May 26th 2011, new rules governing the use of cookies by websites comes into force in Europe.

Rather than the "Opt out" option for website visitors, websites will need to specifically gain the consent of their visitor and they must "Opt In" to be able to store cookies on their computer or other devices.

This is expected to be difficult to manage and enforcement will more than likely be done subtilely and with encouragement rather than with the threat of fines and penalties.
