Securing Them Gigglebits

Today we’re launching SSL or HTTPS support for a number of pages on the site. This includes the login page, change password form and other user specific sections. You’re probably familiar with “lock” or secure icon in the bottom window of your browser. This form of surfing means the data transmitted is encrypted from your source computer all the way to our destination web servers. Thus folks in your office, dorm or other environments can’t “sniff” your login information. This is a great value if you’re browsing on unsecured WiFi or other shared networks.

For clarification, our billing partners have always received your credit card billing information in this fashion. Extensive testing has been done for the past few weeks to minimize problems. As always, please escalate any issues via the tech support request form.

P.S. I’m sure the uber geeks will point out that HTTPS doesn’t prevent MITM or Man-in-the-middle attacks are still possible. You pervs!

    The only time I’ve ever had a problem on the net was one time when I clicked on a review on the All Music site. Some weird gray box came up from a hacker and my computer said someone was trying to hack me. That was about 6 months ago. Thankfully nothing happened. It was very scary though. Never gone back to All Music since.

    stanley77 – I believe that’s Mia Rose. See Alison’s article on the blog entitled Who’s That Girl? posted 10/30/07.

    Off-topic, if you google cum dodgers, the videobox blog entry from 12/6/07 is the number 1 search return!

    Hey baby, if my man-in-the-middle doesn’t do it for you I’ll try my brute force attack or some kinky side channel action or maybe you’re up for some chosen plaintext.

    (No wait, that last one doesn’t really work. Nevermind.)
