Can anyone tell me if this is even safe?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I see this pop up once awhile i order something online but i do refresh and i see the LOCK on the bar on the bottom right screen to make sure i'm doing a secure transition. But however when i don't see a locked icon i see this..

You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party.

Can someone tell me why do i get theses? Does it mean the website isn't secure or it's a browser thing? I really wanna fully understand how this works and i don't wanna get paranoid thinking someone is spying on me or stealing my information. Please educate me

It means that sections of it aren't secured. which i call BS on. I don't trust it all really

They're probably using frames, the main page is not https and the page in the frame is.

if the page is https, then its secure
some onlines stores use frames for their checkout, so the address bar will not show https, but it is fairly secure

but not always 100%, keyloggers or other malware can hijack your cc or acct infos without your knowledge

But when i refresh it's gone? How is that possible? How can i have a virus? I am using MSE and i don't have any problems? Mind clarify this? Interesting.. how it's not secured. I'm tempted to call them up. They use mac computers at their skate shop.

Keyloggers or trojans shouldn't give you this error as they don't generally hijack network sessions themselves (since you already have the unencrypted data at the endpoint anyway). If there's any kind of data presented on the page that isn't sourced from an encrypted origin then you'll get this error.

Once you get the lock you should be able to view the certificate to verify it's legitimacy.
