That Firefox 60 plans to start Mixed Passive Content with https is great, but blocking it in case it fails to load via https surprises me. At this time much passive content transits only through http…
When you have an SSL Certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by cyber crooks. GoDaddy makes it easy to install your certificate and secure your server
In February 2017, an implementation error caused by a single mistyped character in code used to parse HTML created a buffer overflow error on Cloudflare servers. Similar in its effects to the Heartbleed bug discovered in 2014, this overflow error, widely known as Cloudbleed, allowed unauthorized third parties to read data in the memory of programs running on the servers—data that should otherwise have been protected by TLS.
Google wants to ensure the best user experience for their customers, so understandably they don’t want to send searchers to insecure sites. Because of that, their ranking algorithm favors HTTPS sites. If your site isn’t secure, it could be getting outranked by similar sites that are.
I have the same issue with the green lock turning grey with yellow triangle. This happens on every single email no matter what, i refresh the page it goes green and click on email then right back where i strarted with the yellow warning sign. This has been happening for several years i believe. Do i need to get away from yahoo?? It seems this may have started when there was virus going around through yahoo but it’s been going so long i have forgotten. Possibly time to ditch yahoo?……….Thank you for any imput.
Partial mitigations; disabling fallback to SSL 3.0, TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, disabling cipher suites with CBC mode of operation. If the server also supports TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, the POODLE attack will fail against this combination of server and browser, but connections where the server does not support TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV and does support SSL 3.0 will still be vulnerable. If disabling cipher suites with CBC mode of operation in SSL 3.0, only cipher suites with RC4 are available, RC4 attacks become easier.
Test your damn web pages! No seriously, this is a fundamentally basic flaw and as soon as you load the page most browsers will start complaining. Have we – even us developers – become so desensitised to security warnings that we totally ignore them?!
With all of these tools you can quickly find any insecure resources that are loading on your web page. Being aware of any mixed content errors on your web page is crucial and they should be resolved as soon as possible to help make your website a safer place for visitors to browse.

Once a GlobalSign SSL certificate has been purchased, installed, and is active on your website, visitors will be able to see a number of trusted signs that your site is secure. When visitors enter an SSL-protected page on your website, they will see a locked padlock and the “https” in their browser address bar. You will also have the option (recommended!) to add a security seal on your web pages. This seal will clearly communicate that your website has been verified and is secure. A visitor may click on this SSL seal to view the details and status of your website’s SSL certificate.
One really important point is to change the default administrator username. Hackers are looking for easy targets – if you use the default username like ‘admin’ then you’re a sitting duck. Make your login credentials original and difficult to crack.
The article is an expansion of our other article on what to do when a website does not open. Some of the tips may be repeated in this article. So if you find that you are unable to open or access some websites, here are a few things you may want to try out.
In a perfect world, each user agent would be required to block all mixed content without exception. Unfortunately, that is impractical on today’s Internet; a user agent needs to be more nuanced in its restrictions to avoid degrading the experience on a substantial number of websites.
For one thing, our SSL certs cover unlimited secure servers. They support up to 2048-bit encryption and they’re recognized by all of the major desktop and mobile browsers on the market. Plus, they’re backed by the industry’s best 24/7 phone service and support. There’s absolutely no technical difference between GoDaddy SSL Certificates and those offered by other companies – they simply cost less. Is it any wonder we’re the largest provider of net new SSL Certificates in the world?
With the gift giving season coming up, many people will be doing their holiday shopping online. In fact, Americans will spend an estimated $61 billion shopping online this holiday season. Even mobile shopping is up 25% since last year.
