    Seems like the internet is a far cry from 2015 and it’s harder to eavesdrop. I remember when I used to travel hotels I used to see 8 people watching porn at any given time lol

    Linux update servers still use HTTP.

    The actual packages are protected with an GPG signature to make sure can check if the version they see is the correct version. The GPG signature on the root file only has a valid time of 1 week, so an traffic intersection hacker could only delay updates by 1 week

    The advantage of this is that the files are easily cache able by HTTP proxies and thus reduces the load on the network of bigger companies and datacenters

    I love to check https://whynohttps.com/ before providing awareness training and look for sites that folks might be familiar with.

    So many top ranked sites without an adequate HTTPS implementation.

    Lots, unfortunately. There’s one old school forum site I still frequent that isn’t https yet. It pains me to log into it. But I have all burner data there so it’s not a huge deal. But I cringe every time I go there.

    Have you tried google dorking? Half the time websites are not using SSL

    I mean, just cause the data is encrypted, doesn’t mean that you can’t still see the endpoints.

    Am I missing something?

    You can still see who’s watching porn on your local network regardless of HTTPS – the destination of the requests (hostnames/ips) is not encrypted nor it could be for the internet to work – right?

    How do you used to do eavesdropping? Do you use any specific tools for that?

    Thankfully there’s [https://letsencrypt.org/](https://letsencrypt.org/) today to make it easy for the non lazy to adapt, so there’s really no excuse anymore.

    Now someone just need to offer free code signing as well. Such a racket.

    Yes, atleast portions of some, if you have a firewall you can sort data by http.

  • #463691

    How did this eavesdropping work with http?

    Also it might be harder for you to be eavesdropping. But its easier for government nowadays.

    I work in a school division that just moved their website to https this year. Individual school websites are still http, and yes, there are login fields. i think they are planning to transition them to https in january.

    Once you leave the English part of the internet it seems to be a lot more common.
