Session hijacking is an attack where a user session is taken over by an attacker. A session starts when you log into a service, for example your Candidate Profile, and ends when you log out. The attack relies on the attacker’s knowledge of your session cookie, so it is also called cookie hijacking or cookie side-jacking.

SuccessFactors has relevant mechanism to keep the cookie safeIt means if the attacker was not able to get the victim’s cookie, the attacker won't have a chance to reuse the cookie and information contained on it.
