www.metafilter.com just redirected me several times to the login page. Then I received a warning message about security certificates. I chanced it and logged in, now everything's normal. Anybody else getting this? (btw, subdomains also redirected me to the login page). [more inside]

which raised the issue of fears among some in the African-American electorate that Barack Obama would not be safe as president. The thread was shut down for reasons of WTF. Not exactly sure what the problem was, and I was disappointed, as I had recently heard about this and was hoping the thread would shed some light on the issue. This NYT article
would be a good starting point for discussion.

Is MeFi protected against CSRF
? I know the logout link isn't (should be a form button anyway) and could be triggered by displaying an image to a MeFi user, but if the forms are vulnerable things could get nasty (imagine someone posting a link that changes your prefs, or makes you create a post, etc.). Just askin'...

Ok, in this
comment by #1, it is revealed that user pages have been considerably further locked down. I wonder, is all that extra security still in place? [more inside]

I've been spending lots of time on wireless networks lately, so I finally up and got an SSL certificate for MetaFilter
. Enjoy. Eventually I'll try to get all the user/pass pages going through https:// to make the site more secure.

Alas, there was a critical fact overlooked on the recent hardware upgrade, one which left the server vulnerable to the [sapphire|slammer|SQ hell] worm. All's better now.

What exactly is it that just happened to Blogger? I saw hints that there had been some sort of security breach, and now everything is inaccessible. (And the Blogspot server is outright offline as I write this.) There was some sort of password break?

IE has a huge, gaping hole
that allows executable files to be downloaded and run on the computers of browsers.
thanks to the wonder of non-disclosure agreements, we won't know the precise nature of the bug (yet), but this one sounds bad.

I was looking at the source in the Auto-close Open Tags
thread, and I noticed that the comment submit box has my user password stored as clear text. It's not like MeTa/MeFi need to be highly secure, but I'm wondering if there is a better way to handle that.
