As you may have noticed, some avatars and forum signatures have been somewhat broken. This is because I have updated the forums to not allow external images to be used directly as either avatars or images.

This change has been made to make the site work better over SSL (feel free to switch to use https://fumbbl.com rather than the unencrypted version).

This is an effort I'm making to combat things like Firesheep, which I'm sure you've heard of by now (if not, google it and be amazed).

Thank you for understanding.

Not sure why, but I never seem to be able to upload an avatar image that works. I must be an idiot.. Any advice?

The LRB5/6 icons thread is hilarious now. Fifty-eight pages of people discussing invisible images! Very Happy

Wow, I hadn't heard of firesheep, that is pretty nasty stuff. So am I right in thinking this only effects people who access sites using wifi spots, or can this effect home users too?

Edit: Nevermind I get it now, ignore my question. Embarassed

The underlying issue is exploitable by anyone who can eavesdrop your data traffic. This includes people on your LAN, your ISP, any router between you and the target site, the target site's ISP.

Unencrypted WiFi networks are the most likely attack vectors though.

At this time it is still possible to link external pictures on group, team and player pages and in news posts. On the https site this gives warnings about non-secure content.
Is that going to change aswell?

so am i getting the right feeling that, going forward, there won't be anymore external linking allowed?

while i get the security aspects, and that's fine, the picture linking is a fun part of the forum, and i think it'll be a sorely missed part of the community if it's gone...is there any method to implement the security, but still be allowed to link images, without having to upload them to the site and go through image approval processes?
