Looking at the CherryPy code, it should be printing the name of the illegally-named cookie in that message. What appeared after “Illegal cookie name” ? It’s not the server sending the cookie, but the client browser, so it seems that something has sent an illegal cookie name. Could it be that the client is actually some sort of malicious client or security scan that’s triggering the error?

@jaraco I got two cases: notice_preferences and UnicaNIODID. It is a normal browser (Firefox) that a coworker uses daily. Do you know if there is any way to cherrypy ignores these cookies?
