  • _u = user ID, in your case 1361704 or 1 for a guest.
  • _sid = session ID, will change from time to time and identifies you, combined with _u.
  • _k = session key, only used for "remember me" feature to not always re-log in.

Those two cookies appear to come from the CleanTalk anti-spam extension: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... cleantalk/

As for the 'nf7ab', phpBB randomly generates a cookie name at install time. You can change this name under Cookie Settings in the Administration Control Panel.
