    HTTPS / SSL cert issues ?

    Just curious why IF forums is not under HTTPS, especially since it handles user logins.

    if try to go to HTTPS, i get a cert but also get a mis-match error bitdefender flags and if you try to browse

    https://www.ironmagazineforums.com/

    You get a 404 so their is no HTTPS or proper redirects in place...

    Makes it pretty easy for man-in-the-middle attacks and people to pull user login info if they really wanted...

    You make a good point, but I am not too sure what one would gain by hacking an account here?
