Angry Your passwords are not encrypted

Hi

Whenever you login on this website, if anyone with minimal hacking skills (packet sniffing) is in your network (public events or just a public wifi), they can see your password clearly.

Can something Please be done about it, ty.

It's not taken seriously enough, and this thread hopefully shows everyone with no knowledge on https the clear consequence.

Yes, I do.

Synthlight let our cPanel license expire back in May, so there is nothing we can do about it.

Synth owns the website, but does he own the data ?
Are there public terms and conditions we can see regarding to what is intellectual property in this context ?

actual web security is legitimately too much to expect from this site, so the next best thing we have is social engineering

do what raeko said and have a password you don't use elsewhere and change it sometimes too

We've been attempting to contact Synthlight almost every month since September 2015, over 3 years ago. He reappeared for 12 days in December 2017, to help fix a disk failure and setup a new development server, then vanished again leaving us very confused.

By what means ? Email ? Phone ?

I'm asking so I don't suggest things that were already attempted many times

Guys, here's a great idea.

Everyone's password should be "password" for www.flashflashrevolution.com

Bulletproof plan that has no backfiring consequences!!!!!!!!!!!!
