I failed to speak with precision in my post above. That is my bad. Cluesforum is safe, and SSL secure, but still a hassle for our members and readers at the moment. And that is a problem. I certainly did not mean to minimize the significance of this type of issue in the grander scheme of things.patrix » October 6th, 2018, 1:03 am wrote:SacredCowSlayer » October 6th, 2018, 1:56 am wrote:Yes, there was a technical issue that arose briefly this afternoon.anonjedi2 » October 5th, 2018, 7:40 pm wrote:I received this warning from Google for the first time ever, visiting CluesForum today.
The site is secure. I had to “tell” my computer to “allow” access here after it got resolved.
It’s all good.
This is a big problem affecting all users. Google has now made SSL certificate mandatory for all sites and Cluesforum does not have one or it isn't valid?
Every time I load a page from Cluesforum on my Android tablet, I get the nag screen above and are not able to switch it off permanently.
You should be able to get an SSL certificate for free at https://letsencrypt.org or renew the one you have.
To me this is obviously a way to implement internet censorship. Have all sites implement this technology and have all webbrowsers make it mandatory for "security reasons".
Then when it's established it's time for the bait and switch. Revoke certificates for sites that do not support "human values" and it will be very hard for people to access them because they will see the message above, and in the future sites without a certificate will probably not be accessible at all.
Edit: I get the same thing on my phone, so it's definitely an issue with Cluesforums SSL certificate.
I was actually in the middle of a conversation with Simon when the site for CF and The TYCHOS went down. Prompt action was taken to get them back to where they could even be accessed, let alone safely.
If you kind members could verify that you are able to see tychos.info, and let us know in this thread, it would be appreciated.
Thank you all for bearing with us here while this is being worked out. Please note this isn’t the first time for this odious message (regarding the site being unsafe) to appear.
