Cookie hacking: is it possible to edit them manually?

Asked by : bot , Date : Sept. 26, 2021, 2:36 p.m.

is it possible to "hack" a cookie? For example, If someone is logged in, I create an 'user id' cookie, with value 'usr01301', and this is a reference to that user. If this user is loading the webpage, the website will check for cookies. If a 'user id' is available, the user will login with the account connected to the user id.

But, is someone able to write this cookie manually? Or change it to another ID? To be able to login with this cookie.

Answers :

predictable cookies are a bad idea. with that, anyone can predict cookie for any user existed on that website. and manually edit also possible ad there are lot of tools available o internet to do it autometically.
