Hi everyone,

 

Let me start by saying that I love the forums here and the people.  It's a great place and I love e-sword.  I used it all the time before switching to linux.  Recently been trying to get information about the old Live version of e-sword so I can help get that back on-line so linux users can use the software and this brought me back to your forums.

 

Now for the reason I'm posting this is because I noticed the site here is not secured with SSL.  I think this is a huge vulnerability for security as everyone who logs into the site is putting their passwords out there in plain text, and since many people use the same passwords for other sites, and anyone could intercept their login to biblesupport.com and easily get their passwords I would like to suggest to you admins that you add SSL support for the forums.  

 

Your web host should offer SSL certificates for less than $5/yr, and many hosting services offer them for free.  Also, if cost is an issue and your hosting provider does not offer free ssl certificates then you could also use letsencrypt for Free trusted SSL certificates to secure your site.

 

I hope that you guys will take some time and seriously consider my request to add SSL support to your site.  With everything going on today the Church is targeted more and more by online hackers.  We need to be secure and protect our community from these threats.

 

Thank you all and God Bless!

I totally agree, in today's world it is essential to setup an SSL certificate for security.

I wouldn't mind helping you guys get that setup if its a matter of not knowing.

 

It should be pretty simple with the web hosting provider.

To the webmaster of this site:

YES you should secure the site for your own sake and ALL of your clients that use it.

Hey Josh,

Me thinks that there are people starting to voice their concerns over the lack of security here, mate. Like, they seem to be concerned about their privacy, and such things like hackers breaking in stealing data.

 

Blessings,
