I recently had a security test run on my website, and it came back with the following cookie vulnerability:

"Cookies that could be cached:
safe = maybe; Path=/<mySubSection>"

<mySubSection> is a section of the site that --is-- password protected. So it bothers me that this cookie is cacheable. But what the heck cookie is it? What is a "safe = maybe" cookie?
