Secure Servers Not So Secure

from the oops dept

If you’ve finally gotten over your fear of using your credit card on the web, and are happy when you see the little icon indicating you’re on a secure sever, perhaps you should think again. Nearly a third of secure servers are very “weak” according to a new study. To be honest, I doubt this will surprise too many people. No one feels all that safe about their credit cards being used online, but you just hope that nothing happens to you – or if it does, then you just put it back on the credit card company.
