Cookie GrabberCookie Grabber
['kʊkiː 'gɹæbəɹ]
A special type of script, hidden in a webpage, that tricks your computer into sending its "cookies", or stored website data, to an outside source. Web pages with cookie grabbers are often set up by malicious users who want to be able to access others' accounts, and are frequently disguised as giveaways or pages of "secrets".
Example Usage:
"He sent me a link to an offsite web page that he said was a special Neocash giveaway, but I was worried it might be a cookie grabber so I didn't click it."
