Slitherine Forum should be HTTPS

Post by Stu2bee » Sat Apr 06, 2019 6:09 pm

I thought it was industry practice now to have all sites (especially those you login to) to be HTTPS.
Anyone here that is using an open wifi (ie hotspots) can easily have their login credentials captured. Hopefully you are not using these same credentials for anything other than this forum.
If you think I'm offbase here, please post. I was surprised to see the "Not Secure" in the browser during authentication.

Thanks for pointing this out. I think this is a very serious topic. phpbb is possible on https, isn't it?

The board could be converted to HTTPS...they already have a ssl cert for their store. Since it's the same URL I imagine it's just the process of updating the backend.

It's sort of absurd in 2019 for the site to not be secured.

Well, unfortunately it seems that nobody from Slitherine has responded to this thread yet?

payment part is everything else isn't and not an issue for most, unless your using wifi on a unknown connection and most browsers and O/S even then, it doesn't affect, seen it on the first post, but as it's not the first one on the same subject, same answer applies

I see, thanks, so I guess there are no plans to migrate it then.

no idea tbh, office is back open tomorrow and will ask, but normally on web sites, it's not needed as long as the payment part is secure, which it is

I'm not happy when I get a message that my credentials are being submitted on an in-secure log-in.
