I'm trying to establish a secure connection to https://forums.thedarkmod.com, but Firefox keeps telling me that forums.thedarkmod.com was not properly configured:

forums.thedarkmod.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for svn.thedarkmod.com

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

 

Even if I don't post sensible data over here I still don't like the idea that my log-in data and passport travel through the net as plain text and can be seen by everyone. Can somebody of the forum admins maybe fix this?

 

Thanks in advance :)

The main website and this forum doesnt use a security certificate.

 

And your plain password "IamNightCrawler" send to the forum is stored as a hash in the forums database.

And your email "Nightinsect@taffer.com" is for the world to know.

So the password is also sent as a hashed one to the forum or as plain text?

Following the manual of this forumsoftware, password will be sended in plain text.

In my experience, if you want to have something in tdm (and his other products), you have to do it your own.
So buy a certificate for this domain and donate to it

Alternatively if the hosting system allows it there's https://letsencrypt.org/ which is free
