Both chrome and mozilla are starting to get very strict.
Changes are going to affect an awful lot of websites - particularly all
forums will be affected.
Beginning in January 2017, Chrome (version 56 and later) will mark pages that collect passwords or credit card details as “Not Secure” unless the pages are served over HTTPS.
In effect it will be forcing site owners who run forums to purchase some sort of SSL certificate.
Then on top of that, there is the problem with inserting images into a https forum that will also throw warnings if the image is hosted on another website and show as broken. From memory you then need to get some sort of proxy.
There's quite a lot of community based forums who are unhappy about these changes re cost and work involved. Although Im not on shared hosting, I believe some who are, are also running into config problems.
TBH its not anything I know much about and why I pay for managed hosting leaving them to ensure security issues are kept up to date. I'm kept busy enough without having to worry about the server side of things.
With not processing any payments its not anything Ive ever had to look into, but now its going to affect forums then I need to start researching my options.
I'm also concerned about my own
personal security when it comes to SSL verification. Already had one nutjob to deal with and I'm not putting myself or my family at risk.
