forum.eset.com moving to SSL


Recommended Posts

  • Former ESET Employees



To make your stay on ESET Security Forum safer, we have decided to implement SSL on forum.eset.com. The SSL will be implemented at the end of this week. All http requests to forum.eset.com will be automatically switched to https so there’s no need to change existing links.


In the first phase we will implement SSL to the entire website. This will bring two restrictions to the forum functionality:

  • Videos cannot be embedded directly to posts.
  • Images cannot be inserted from an external URL.

In the second phase (in the course of the following months), after some testing and environment configuration, we'll remove SSL and keep it only for the login/registration step. This will make both restricted functionalities available again while still keeping the sensitive data secure.


Thank you,
ESET Security Forum

Some users are still experiencing broken certificate errors via SSL login.

Is there some TBA when this is going to be fixed ?

Those seeing the broken SSL certificates would be those using IE 8 under Windows XP.



Hello, this is because Windows XP does not support Server Name Indication. More details here: hxxp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication#Client_side

Unfortunately, there's no easy workaround for this on our side.
