This is a public forum and as such is view-able to all. The site isn't "secure" as this includes people just strolling through as guests. Passwords are encrypted, and that encryption also protects your email. So don't post any sensitive information to a thread. That's all the warning is telling you.

Thanks for the reply Kevin. Yes I do understand its a public forum and anybody can surf through.


I do wonder about the 3rd line in the alert that I took a photo of and posted above.
Its been popping up in the past week or so.


It reads - "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"


Can you comment on that please?

That is an answer one might expect from an over-zealous moderator, not an informed site administrator on a site run by a corporation that runs sites.

The message is saying that the site certificate, which is part of what lets all that encryption work, has got some issues that need some administrating. This is not a user level FYI, but an infrastructure To Do.

I'm not using https and am not seeing that message, but some are.

This is my signature block. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My signature block is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life....

Anybody?


The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

After all - what can possibly go wrong.

Sorry for the delay. I was getting more in depth answers for you guys.

When my techy guy gets a chance, he'll try and post a more specifics heavy answer for you guys, but he's the gist of what he told me

Nothing has changed on our end. The security hole that's being mentioned by your browser is about a "man in the middle" vulnerability, where someone intercepts what you are typing as you type it. Passwords are still safe, and the previous data breach had nothing to do with this kind of an attack.

There are plans of getting the "https" added to the login screen, but I don't have an eta on when that would happen.
