Re: Getting "Web Attack: Malicious Cookie Activity"

Hi teeps,


It sounds like you are being redirected to a malicious site that uses a toolkit to search your installed software programs for unpatched  vulnerabilities that can be exploited to install malware.  Norton is preventing the toolkit from accessing your computer.  The problem needs to be addressed by the website owner or host.
