The Opera web browser, ( and others ) reports this site, Olympus UK E-System User Group, as being insecure and advises against posting any sensitive data such as passwords, credit card details or any other sensitive data, as they could be stolen. It also reports the current use of 5 cookies.

Popups now seem to have been introduced on this site advising users that it uses cookies etc. so hopefully the next step will be sorting out it's Security Certificates.

Only working on what reports come to me. Don't see anything unsafe on the forum. We don't give credit card details so what is to be stolen?

The report does say there is insufficient data for child safety, but suspect if any member did try to post any tricky child photos they would not last for long.

But I am only a "punter" so perhaps don't understand the ramifications of the Web. But we all do need to be on alert for the ******** who are out to trick us...........

Until I am told otherwise, I am very happy with the forum security, and hope it will continue to be a good place to be..............

Re: "Not Secure" Warning Triangle

Opera does not state the site is Unsafe, it says it's Insecure, like many more websites are. Hence the security warnings on login.

You're correct about nothing worth stealing though, apart from a few words of wisdom about Brexit , unless someone is silly enough to use the same password for other sites such as Paypal.

When you see the published lists of "most used passwords" such as password, letmein, AAAAA etc. it does make you wonder about the common sense of some people. Apparently, a large percentage of people use the same password for every site they use. Sod's Law being what it is, those sorts will never get hacked or experience a security problem.

Re: "Not Secure" Warning Triangle

Talking about "security" it looks like Mark's original profile photo has been stolen and replaced by a very smart distinguished looking guy now

Sorry MJ224, I was referring ( tongue in cheek ) to your change in profile photo. No offence was implied or intended.

Re: "Not Secure" Warning Triangle

It's simple really:

- If a site uses plain HTTP, there is no encryption of the data to/from your browser. In principle, anyone could snoop on your interaction.

- If a site uses HTTPS (aka SSL) then the data to/from your browser is encrypted. The data contents cannot be snooped.

If you're passing credit card details or other sensitive data then you need HTTPS. Whether you need HTTPS for other apps is a moot point. The trend now is to use HTTPS for pretty well all web-sites, which is why Chrome is flagging sites that don't use it.

Of course, whilst MOST of what do on e-group is not sensitive, be careful if you're sending sensitive information in, say, PMs.

Not necessarily a good thing as it means a security appliance at the boundary can’t snoop it to look for potential malware either. Difficult balance to be made, but for us ‘ordinary’ users I guess HTTPS is better. Or is it?
