Target Redcard Login Unsafe???

target:rcam.jpgI was checking all of my accounts and just wanted to make sure my recent payment to Target posted. When I attempt to log in I see this. Is anyone else having issues?

Re: Target Redcard Login Unsafe???

that looks pretty scary. maybe someone sniffing packets or some redirect.    try from another device while you are scanning your mac

I am using Chrome. Tried it on Firefox and the warning does not come up. But now I am scared to login!

It is only happening on the Target site. I had already logged into all of my other CC online accounts and never saw this warning until Target. Given Targets history.....well, made me nervous.

So the HTTPS is showing up on Firefox. I am not that tech advanced in regards to security. So making sure that is up in Firefox should be ok?

Re: Target Redcard Login Unsafe???

weird google chrome is taking out the HTTPS as you can see it is crossed out for whatever reason..  Maybe Target let their certificate accidently expire and this is causing the chrome issue and chrome is catching it?  I will let other people chime in here..  Difference between HTTP and HTTPS in the simplest terms is the S stands for Secure and uses encryption, although there is more to it than that.  I work in tech, just in my line of work I really don't have to deal with browsers and certificates..  I am sure someone else will chime in here.

Yeah, that is what is striking through in red in addy bar. Considering I have no idea what a Veri-sign check is, I would say no, Macs don't have that. They generally do a couple of warnings like the photo I just posted stating that the site is not secure and asking if you want to proceed.

Verisign is a certificate...  Either they let it expire or something else is up... Their is no difference with a Mac or PC w/regards to if they let their certificate expire or whether it is another issue..  In other words if Verisign certificate was good it works on both mac's and pc just the same
