Fortify on Demand Remediation: Cookie Security: Cookie not Sent Over SSL

This is another one that might be a false positive or might be legit. If you look at the documentation for PHP’s setcookie function, you will see the sixth parameter sets a restriction so cookies are only sent over secure connections. If you are not setting this restriction, the vulnerability is legitimate and you should sort that. But … if you followed PHP’s documentation and passed 1 to the parameter? FoD is falsely reporting that the parameter is not set to true.

In this case, the solution is easy enough. Change your perfectly valid 1

to say true

And voila, the vulnerability has been remediated.
