Top lefthand corner has a padlock with a line through it and says passwords entered in the website could be compromised?

I get this with IE when I log directly onto the forum, otherwise no issues with Betfair site itself

had a big security problem a few years ago but was covered up apparently, so I read on the forum.

A bit like Tesco banking ... only a few accounts compromised??

I've been getting the same message for a couple of days, but only on the forum, not the betting site.

Similar message appears on the BBC site for me.

It may be the result of a firefox update.

Yep, just seen that.

Don't post your log in or cr card details on the forum is my advice.  Not all chit chatters are trustworthy. Laugh

Yes zorro, it is the difference between those two options on inspection.
The saved bookmark doesnt contain the 's' implying it secure and was only noticed since a recent graphical change on the image of the padlock in firefox.
It seems my previous habit of signing in through the forum is not the best option and people should perhaps take heed.
Qhite why there is a disparity between signing into betfair on two different pages, one being secure while the other not is open to question.

it's my classically trained mind.

i first focused on WB cartoons.
then to the classics like Dexters Lab and Powerpuff girls.
now everyday i'm concentrating on the experimental masters.

Only a mind honed to perfection could see at a glance that windows is **** and needs to start from scratch.

You don't need Google, Mozilla, IE, or any other computer program to know this forum has been compromised.
