Why is meet.churchofjesuschrist.org not secure?

Post by slloyd »

When I go to meet.churchofjesuschrist.org it asks me to authenticate then says the site I am going to is insecure and that my info will be open for others to see.
I am not willing to let my church auth credentials to be submitted on a non-secure site.

In my opinion this is a critical issue.

That's interesting. I know I didn't get that before.

They're having some issues with having it work right with multiple callings, so they're likely making changes. I'd try again later.

Until it is fixed I am not willing to go there. There are SO many crawlers out there looking for stuff like this so they can steal your credentials.

Interesting. It seems to be something in the transition. When I arrive at "meet", it's secured.

Edit: and now that I'm logged in, I'm not getting it at all.

I just noticed that I do not get it when I am signed in. Only when I am not yet signed in and am in the process of signing in through the double unfocused sign on system.

I have the same problem. What I am seeing through network tracing is:

Request URL: https://meet.churchofjesuschrist.org/
Request URL: https://ident.churchofjesuschrist.org/s ... /authorize?...
data:image/png;base64,...

I do not know much about "data URLs" but if that is the one triggering the "Information you're about to submit is not secure" that feels safe. Until I find out more I am not going to complete the authentication either.

The data URL is a "i" with a circle around it.

I analyzed with WireShark (not an expert) and did not see any http packets going out of my network from the computer I attempted to go to meet.churchofjesuschrist.org.

It looks like it could related to recent browser changes. Here is a discussion about Chrome 87 (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is ... id=1158169).

I use Firefox and see the same thing.

I do not know if someone noticed my wry comment about the sign on system, but it is now focused, and I would be remiss in not thanking whoever made the change. I sign on so often it has been difficult to adjust to the two screen system, and it was even more frustrating when I had to find my cursor and aim it at the box on the first sign on screen to begin.

But I did notice that the first screen now does focus on the login box, and I am grateful for that little change.

Thank you.
