The pit goes encrypted

Post by Andrew »

cause... Theresa May.

only joking... not really joking

been meaning to do this for a little while now, delboy gave me the kick in the a**e to do it :giggle:

you'll probably notice a green padlock in the address bar, this means data is encrypted.

on some pages it will show an exclamation sign or something, this is because of mixed content. that could be an image that is hosted on another website that does not use https. nothing I can really do about that at the moment (I have a solution but it may not be suitable for our hosting) but the core of the forum and data submitted is still encrypted, just not embeded images.

as an example of what this means;

Lumby puts a picture up using the [img] tag of a dog, a "man in the middle"(a hacker on your network for example) can change that picture to show a photo of boobs or can see what that image you are looking at is.

Posts, pm's, logins, profile changes etc are all still encrypted. embeded youtube vids use https so theres no problem there.

this will only ever be the case with images embeded using the IMG tag (if those images dont utilise https://) and peoples avatars that are linked off site. everything internal to the-pikers-pit.co.uk is all encrypted.

Thanks

p.s. I dont expect any issues arising from this change but if so drop me a line here or on the pits facebook page

Did you mean - 'lumby puts up a picture of a pair of boobs, and a hacker can change that to a photo of a dog?'
