Fur Affinity adds secure login; breaks SFW login

Furry art community Fur Affinity has implemented a secure login server. This should prevent computers on the same network (such as those on an hotel wireless system) from intercepting credentials, and deter some man-in-the-middle attacks.

The change comes shortly before FA: United – perhaps in the hope of avoiding a repeat of 2007's breach. Several other security issues remain.

The new login path does not work for the recently-added 'safe-for-work' subdomain. Users can manually load and accept a certificate exception to login; they must subsequently reload

Update: 'Safe-for-work' logins should be fixed in the next update.

I think that has more to do with some ongoing drama.
