Subject description: Expired SSL Certificates
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Why is there no HTTPS version of this site available? And when I try, I get a self-signed certificate that expired in 2015!

That means, I can goto a starbucks, or public WiFi -- and intercept the plaintext user and password of anyone trying to login to this website, because the login dosn't happen over HTTPS. It also means ISP's and governments around the world are monitoring what we read and post here. (Don't tell anyone, but I may or may not have done things like this as a kid growing up before HTTPS became popular, heh.)

Please implement the free SSL Certificate signing service https://letsencrypt.org/ -- It's used by millions around the world, and it's what I use for my website! Highly reccomended.

Thanks in advance for keeping your users secure. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need any help or have any questions!

I've read it and you are absolutely right, thanks.

There is a letsencrypt certificate already which is being renewed and all - I need to sort out some stuff first though before I can put it in.
