    Why the traffic be identify as cooike injection attack?
    It's identified as cookie injection attack when client add new cookie value into request,but we can see the screen,Violation item and value are same as observed value,so,why it is identify a cookie injection attack.

    @yonghao gao, I spoke to one of our sales engineers @Pal Balint and he said: 

    The Profile Policy fired an alert on the type or length deviation of the observed vs the profiled value of that cookie. 
     ​​This is a medium severity alert by default. Depending on the traffic and volume profile of that protected website, Learning Preferences may require to be tuned to better adapt and learn of low / medium / high traffic sites so that all legit variation of cookies and values are seen & learned by the Profiler
