  • Security Certificate

    Why is it that a get a security certificate warning from this site whenever I visit? Doesn't matter if it's PC or phone. My phone browser said it was something to do with a facebook tag or something. But only happens on this site.

    Never got one from here...seems odd. I'd say it might be your end, but if it happens on multiple devices...hmmmmm.

      when the site was upgraded long ago Zeb had a ability for members to facebook link or whatever it was. Members didn't want it so he killed it. Perhaps there is something that your browser hits. I don't get anything like that. Maybe the master can chime in.

        It was a logon button that if you had Farcebook you could log in with your FB identity. Of course I reckon because most railroads actually read people FB pages, they don't want to be known here by that ID. I don't do FB myself.

          Ya, I don't recall the details, but I know he pulled it down (it was included in the upgrade) no ones info got put out, but enough people said they didn't care for it and he pulled it.
          I'm no tech guy, so don't listen to me.

            So, let me get this straight...

            Zeb installed a plugin... And apparently didn't know how to uninstall it?

            I think I'll leave that one alone...

            My first thought is a nefarious script created some entries in your hosts file to intercept Facebook traffic... but I doubt that it would have been able to infect your computer AND your phone, unless it has something to do with a website that you have visited with both devices.

            As big as Facebook is, when they have issues with their security certs, there is usually a dozen posts that hit my news feed about facebook being evil and another dozen indicating that zuckerburg is an idiot and doesn't know how to program a website.

            It leads me to believe that there is something wrong with your computers or connection.

              Allow me:
              Facebook IS evil.

                *yawn*

                Facebook is unsecure? Do you have anything to validate that nonsense?

                Don't get me wrong, there is tons of shit on Facebook that shouldn't be, but that has nothing to do with the site or the way it was programmed... it is all about the users and their own privacy settings.

                Personally, FB is used to keep up with family that I might never otherwise talk to. My shit is all private, and my employer is NOT listed.

                Facebook security is simple.
