pretty sure this site used to have site secure ? ! Not secure shown in window now ,i thought this stuff was only on main site
This is because it is not using encryption - SSL (https)
Indeed, we can blame Google for that as they have implemented a new policy. If the site does not have a valid ssl and the site requires user details… I.e. Login to a forum, then you get site not secure error
Yes because you practically transmit your password in plain text… Everybody in you network can read it with simple tools like ettercap…
Well it is a valid concern. Without https, any POST is basically plain text, and can be sniffed out from network traffic.
And its not like hard to get a https cert nor is it expensive, lets encrypt provides it free.
You name it
But i was a second faster
It is actually a good policy. We can blame server admins for being lazy about the security.
I made a post a few months ago to make some noise. But they still haven’t touched it. It’s quite annoying.
Give me 10 minutes and cpanel access and i’ll fix it for em.
…then they got their front page hacked. You would have thought that was a BIG RED WARNING sign right there.
No excuses really.
You are going to make @deletedpimaxrep1 sad, mispelling her name like that.
you saw nothing of the sort.
Looks like they took your advice. The pre-order page now uses Lets Encrypt authority.
