Getting a warning on this site?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Posted a thread on the Support forum, don't know if anyone at FFG seen it yet.

At least we are not dealing with the Spam Bots that used to overrun entire forum boards with 5 new spam advertisement threads a second, if anyone remembers those days.

According to another player at the Hyperspace Trials yesterday, the company that certifies or whatever is out of business, and it's the same company that the US Government used. So occasionally errors like this will come up, but it doesn't mean the sites aren't safe--their usual security just hasn't been checked in on for a while, or something.

 

I have no clue but it sounded like he knew what he was talking about XD

The site is safe - for now. 

To put in layman’s terms, the cert not getting updated is trying to play a legal list at next weekend’s HST with September 2018 points. You might be okay, you might be way off, but you won’t know until you check with the TO (get a new updated cert), or your opponent notices some glaring error and your DQ’d (you get hacked). 

So while we’re fine now, the longer it doesn’t get updated the more potential for someone to find an exploit rises. the sooner the update, the better, but it’s not critical at this point because it just happened.

The site is as safe as any http (not https) site. That means that information sent between your computer and the website is not encrypted, so a malicious party could read and/or alter the information being sent in either direction, and they could do so at any time. https://www.troyhunt.com/heres-why-your-static-website-needs-https/
