How come the SAAC site is still not secure?
« on: September 15, 2022, 04:57:47 PM »
Didn't you guys not learn from the last hack? Lost most material...
Not being sarcastic, just wondering.
Past owned Shelby's:
1968 GT-350--Gold
1970 GT-500--#3129--Grabber Orange.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 5 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase heads, intake with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!!

On all my browsers/computers it says in bold letters: '! Not Secure'

It doesn't matter. The valuable information was lost in the first 'crash' and you are just living in the ruins now.

The site HAS been running with SSL/TLS for security.

However, if you accessed the Forum as "http://www.saacforum.com", current browsers would flag it as "Insecure"
If you accessed it as "https://www.saacforum.com"...it would be 'padlocked' and show as secure.

Thanks for this feedback... we had neglected to "throw the switch" that forces all addresses to become "https:".. even just using "saacforum.com" will now show as secure.

Let me know details if you encounter anything different... Ron

The SSL/TLS security is enabled. However, the Simple Machines version SMF 2.0.15 which was released in November 2017 is several software revisions out of date. The current version is SFM 2.1.2


It's only a matter of time before Forum 2.0 crashes. Hopefully there is a database backup now.
