Gravitas? What Gravitas?

Every time I log in from work (ahem, *waves at IT*) I get a warning message from Firefox saying my connection is not secure, and the explanation says that someone could be hacking my account and or nicking my password.

Now, personally, I use a nonny and a unique password so I'm not really that arsed, and we know rof is technologically backward, but what is going on here?

Am I being hacked? Is Teclis doing the hacking?

Does the back interface socket of your hard drive smell of Molton Brown?

Chrome will give you the same warning if you click the i in the URL bar. The next release of Chrome is going to start warning you more prominently about it.

It means there's no security against someone snooping on the traffic between the user and RoF, or that another site could hijack and pretend to be RoF to your computer.

Theoretically at least, I wouldn't worry about it as far as a tiny site like this goes.

I get this with firefox. Is it a warning that the Russkies are monitoring RoF?

another site pretending to be RoF could be as funny as RoF used to be so the difference would be easy to spot
