Just noticed this morning that PCA has done what it said by using https:/ which makes the site more secure.

Now did it just start this morning or has it been like that for a while.

Not sure but Kaspersky keeps saying the certificate for this site is invalid.

Does this now mean that PCA is going commercial, ie. selling things online?

No problem with any of my security programs Fruit Bat /\0/.

Maybe time to give Kaspersky a scan Fruit Bat /\0/\ after all the revelations about it over the last week or so.

It's a Google thing - take a look at this.

To be honest, since LetsEncrypt has matured, there's really no good reason not to encrypt a web site connection. It's made it really simple to do and is free. The days of having to pay megabucks for a certificate and jumping through all sorts of hoops to get verified have long gone.

All the sites I'm currently responsible for use https. It's a no brainer and (allegedly) helps with Google rankings, as it's my understanding they are now taking that into account.

Kaspersky seems to have fixed it - site not throwing up an error this time I logged in :0)

Which revelations. Don't you mean groundless allegations?

Same result here from Kaspersky. It started two days ago.

For the avoidance of doubt, LetsEncrypt does verify ownership, but it's automated. It's no less secure than any other certificated site.
