Insecure Login

Today when I tried to long in, Firefox warned me that the login was not secure. This is problematical since the bb was previously hacked. Has the login sequence been compromised? Is it still safe to login here?

I'm seeing the same indicator (null sign through the padlock icon, "Connection is Not Secure"). Is it safe?

Well, I can add it to the list of places I've been hacked or had my information compromised. I also get the lock with the red slash through it, but I also get that on one of my e-mail accounts and when I log-in to MyGateway at work. They just tell us not to worry about it.

I have so many protections and alerts set that I get a lot of e-mail notifying me of things that I initiated and are fine. I guess, that's better than not knowing. But it seems every time I turn around, I'm getting a new letter that one of my accounts has been compromised. Just off the top of my head: Yahoo e-mail, Blue Cross in California and Premera Blue Cross in Washington, Target, Experian, Bank of America and Union Bank resulted in fraudulent charges on my account ...

This is still an issue. Either not encrypting in transit or at rest or both or just not strong enough encryption. I had someone get my password/user name then login and change my user name and email (basically hijack my account) thankfully i had no tangible personal information on here. Given the amount of advertising on this site pretty sure a site upgrade should be sustainable. Who owns this site anyway?
