Recommended Posts

Mozilla Firefox and other browsers don't want to open the Bidorbuy website since the site no longer has the little golden lock ...

 

I am here at my own risk ...

 

Should I worry?:worried:

Can you check again - we had an issue earlier this morning and it was resolved around 7am.

I'm still getting a warning about sending secure data over an unsecure connection. Yesterday I also wanted to update my card details (for payment of my BOB fees), and the connection was also not secure - no padlock and normal http, instead of https.

No one has answered my question: SHOULD I WORRY ???

 

The site security is not working - what does that mean in terms of how safe my stuff is? :wondering:

 

I am not comfortable logging on when I don't know how risky it is.

 

Should I worry?

Is this still happening this morning (i.e. the login URL: https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/jsp/login/UserLogin.jsp)?

 

Can you do a ping bidorbuy - Bid, Buy or Sell cameras, computers, diamonds, coins, cars & more on auction at cheap prices or tracert bidorbuy - Bid, Buy or Sell cameras, computers, diamonds, coins, cars & more on auction at cheap prices on your PC (via the command line)? We did have a glitch early Friday morning, but the above login page should show the secure padlock and the green address-bar.

I deleted all Bidorbuy mail from my mailbox and when I open mail that I needed to keep

unrelated to Bob this secure and insecure message does not come up when I open

mail other than Bob.

I subsequently received a Bob email and it does the same thing."Do you want to open the secure and insecure"

What is on Bob that is insecure?

One of our engineers will give you a call today to find out what's going on. It's the first time we have heard of such issue.

I subsequently received an email from Ebay and this secure and insecure thingy came up as well.

You say you have never heard of this but the above users seem to have the same complaint

Those are unrelated. The issue on the 7/2 was due to taking new servers online in the morning and we were still busy configuring the SSL certificates as some users got routed to the new servers. Your issue is different. It would help if you can forward those mails in question to customer support and we will then have a look at it.

 

The secure/insecure message would only come up in a case where secure (HTTPS) and unsecure (HTTP) content is mixed on a webpage or email. Bidorbuy does not send out emails with HTTPS content.

Hi GeeWhizz,

 

After our discussion today I believe you are viewing your mail over a secure connection and all mail with html content e.g. images will then give you that warning. eMail is not secure and you can fix this problem by removing the s in the URL you are viewing your mail from

 

https://www.mymailprog.com

should just be

http://www.mymailprog.com

 

You will find that plain text mails would not give you these warnings. So you need not worry about these errors as mail is not supposed to be secure. When you should worry is when you are login in to a site or providing sensitive detail like credit card details and you see these errors.

 

I will look at the mails shortly, but believe this is the problem. I gave you my email and you are welcome to call me at any time during office hours to help you get to the bottom of this.

 

Regards,

AuctionH

It seems problem was solved by following instructions on this link http://www.pchell.com/support/secureandnonsecurewarning.shtml although the https address still seems to be on my gmail

Thanks Henri. My son says I must go on a beginners computer course
