Lance, thanks for the info. I said I was computer illiterate, but I'm learning. From what I read it concerns password vulnerability when using credit card info for online purchases.

'olGeorge, where did you get the " jumbo " condoms to protect your computer? I have some magnum condoms but it broke when I tried to put it on my laptop.

Lance, I also tried logging in with https address , but same results.Now I know why.Thanks again.

twoton, I must have misspelled " shituation ", or is it shitiation.

Thanks for the responses fellas.

Chris

Not a problem. NO credit card information is used here.

Default no credit card use

Roland, exactly why I came to the conclusion that it is not a problem as well.

Correct. So since there is no "shopping cart" attached to the site, there's no need to worry about the "not secure" warning.

No need to switch then.

They only work 99.9% of the time, so you could still get a red circle on it.

As an IT guy, I can say you don't necessarily need a secured site if you don't have bank account, or other personally identifiable information passing around, etc. But you do have usernames and passwords going over clear text, which could be a moderate risk. A secured site uses a SSL certificate to encrypt the traffic going between client and server, so someone couldn't just sniff out the data stream from another computer and easily read it and see your login info, and hack your OCC account and post dumb things.

Well that explains a lot, as I read dumb things on this compooter.
Guess I need to get a clear plastic "garbage bag"

But how many people really use a different password for every website they log into?

Probably not a lot. I know where I work, we have a strict password policy for logging in to company resources, and people use stuff like June2017! to satisfy the requirements... This is the problem with using the same password for everything too, if you have an email account, a paypal account, or even a bank account attached to the same email account and using the same password for all things, once someone gains access to the email account by guessing or hacking the password, they can see emails from PayPal and bank accounts, and go right to those sites and try the same password, and voila... trouble ensues.

I'm a guy who works in the IT field, and even though it is my chosen career path, for the most part I think the internet should have been "strangled in its crib", because for every one good thing the internet provides, there are probably at least 10 bad things that come with it. No thanks to Al Gore for inventing it...

We get audits every year from outside to satisfy PCI compliance and they ALWAYS find vulnerabilities and we have to patch them, because the hackers are ALWAYS one step ahead. It's a real pain in the but really.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
