Unable to establish safe connection to forums
« on: December 25, 2017, 07:33:45 AM »
Why can't I connect to forum.war2.ru using https://?

When I attempt to establish a safe connection through https://forum.war2.ru, it says:

"the owner of the website forum.war2.ru has defined the settings of his/her website wrongly. The browser did not establish a connection to the website to protect your information from theft."


I also wish to emphasize that your information regarding this website (e.g. your passwords) are not protected, and they have been hacked at least once before (it was explicitly told that your passwords had been hacked by a 3rd party). When I personally created a website where people registered to (created username and linked a password to it), I nor anyone of my developer team were able to access these passwords - everything was crypted (and it took us less than 10 minutes to achieve this). So this is another fishy element regarding this website.

Feel free to discuss.

yes, and? It's not like SSL is difficult or expensive to obtain.

it baffles me how many people are incompetence and/or corruption apologists.
