The current cookie specification is RFC 6265, which replaces RFC 2109 and RFC 2965 (both RFCs are now marked as “Historic”) and formalizes the syntax for real-world usages of cookies. It clearly states:
For historical reasons, cookies contain a number of security and privacy infelicities. For example, a server can indicate that a given cookie is intended for “secure” connections, but the Secure attribute does not provide integrity in the presence of an active network attacker. Similarly, cookies for a given host are shared across all the ports on that host, even though the usual “same-origin policy” used by web browsers isolates content retrieved via different ports.
