Hello everyone.

As many of you know months ago introduced the "Cookie Law : the law for which a site should display a banner in case of technical or profiling cookie. Of course in my opinion the situation was handled badly, as it hardly will instruct customers.

Honestly, how many people do you think will read the banners and how many will strive to understand the content?

A few...in my opinion.

But that's not what interests me. The main problem is that doing so will educate users to press "accept" on the banners present on the internet pages from their visit. In practice, users who already are normally disinclined to distinguish a valid banner from one containing phishing material, are instructed to press on the banners that are around.

So I think this campaign, aimed at raising awareness of users about the use of cookies, make them less attentive and more exposed to attacks that can use social engineering techniques.


What do you think?

I think you have a very good point there, the thought had not crossed my mind untill now but you are right it could create extra vulnerability to users. :eek:
