Hi, just saying that even login this forum isn't safe, you send your password totally unsafely! That should be warned in registration page that people (not me) some uses same password in many places wouldn't do that.

And faq have wrong information: faq.php#f0r4

It all falls under "There's no such thing as a 100% secure website." There just isn't. And the sooner people start thinking that way, the better off they will be. As the old saying goes, "As soon as you think you made something fool proof, along comes a better fool."

Due to all respect, but hacking via 'unsafe connection' is not wat it is happening.
All the websites and forums I manage, runs on HTTP connections, not on HTTPS. None were hacking via 'unsafe connection', but via database injection.

The most common methode to hack an account is not via http/https but via database injection, or via a keylogger on the computer of the victim.

I know exactly why they prefer SSL connections, but I am sceptic. I am afraid that SSL connections give us false safety.
For example: The CIA had hacked the switches and routers of the TOR network. And TOR was a real SSL network. Now they can monitor the connection and locate the sender. So anonymous surfing on the internet is a real fairytale.
I am afraid that it the reality for the SSL (https) connections.

I do not believe that this forum is in danger and that logging in via a non SSL connection the user is in danger.
That is the reality.

I am afraid you're not right. ;)
I can run a perfectly safe website.
But only on a server which is not connected to the internet. :lol:

Sorry, that was an open door. :mrgreen:

There are more advantages to TLS than just security - for example, no one likes content injected by ISP. Hey, even CloudFlare has this problem.

Secure web is the right way to go.

Also, it isn't SSL - that's deprecated but everyone is still using this term instead of TLS ;)

I did notice that the blog and ATS website is also insecure too.
So is their a possibility they become a secure website since the forum is getting it too.
