The e-commerce.

Newly added images unsecure?


Recommended Posts

I recently added an image to show the acceptance of VISA, MC etc etc and we had a customer issue with IE popping up a window asking to show Non-Secure Items. It is freaking her out so we had to take her card by hand. In Firefox I also see my lock icon in the bottom right warning me.


I changed the file permissions to 644 but it did not seem to matter. I have had SSL turned on all along and we used to have the gold lock icon show but now it does not.


I am not sure what changed things but I don't think we have a secure SSL session going now which is not good.


Any suggestions welcomed!

To answer my own question and anyone who reads this.


If you forcibly add images to text on certain pages of your retail site and are using SSL (which you need to be)

make sure when you refer to the images you use https and not just http or they will violate the security rules

and be flagged by the browser. While this does necessarily open a security whole the consumer will be flagged

and my refrain from their purchase.
