Default Re: Avid DUC not secure?

https certificates cost. This is a free forum where the terms are clearly, share at your own risk, it still falls back on individuals to understand the risk, assess it and take the necessary precautions. There is no bonafide reason to use https on this site other than to placate the paranoid. I would not waste the money frankly. There are no scripts running on this site or any vBulletin software that grabs passwords. A cookie is saved and thats it. FUD only works to on those unwilling to educate themselves on the real risks. Google scrapes this site nightly so every word you type is searchable on google.

While the whole conversation is a great discussion to have in context of information classified at a certain level other than public (which all forum data is), the risk here is so low its not worth the money investing in securing it with https. Kinda like putting a deadbolt on your dog's doghouse door. What are you protecting that any one really wants other than fleas.

Just MHO!
