Into cookies u can find sometimes usernames and passwords of sites (not AO), web based e-mail and some details about the account.

This is a "Lame" question, not a "newbie" one...
Do a search on google to learn how cookies, browsers and the HTTP protocol works...

The passwords and usernames are CODED in cookie files, if you know how to decode them, then may be you can find the password. For example when you log into hotmail and you choose to remmember your user ID and password, then hotmail will store them in a cookie file, but coded not clear plain text ! some cookies have a expiration date.
You can do a search in google.com for how to stealing passes from victims cookie.

| Here's what you do
Open the cookie in your web browser, (but not in IE or Netscape, cause it doesn't work for some reason.) Then copy the text to a basic text editor and convert it to Hex. Delete the cookie, but save the new text file and go back to the original site you got the cookie from. Sign in again with a different ID to get the new cookie on your computer. Convert that to Hex as well and compare the differences in your original cookie. Copy all the items in the first cookie that are different from the second and save them seperately. Then convert them to normal text and you'll have all the info you need.

its possible and their was a bug in ie that let users download peoples cookies but if a password is stored in a cookie it is 1 of 2 things
1. not good coding on the web masters behalf
2. usually encoded
p.s so this will not help u hack hotmail
