Why You Should Always Site with HTTPS

Recently I found that my Internet provider being “naughty” in their business practices. They added a tracking code to a web page if that page doesn’t use https. This is very annoying and I did try to call the ISP and as usual it goes to the support operator which doesn’t know anything about what I’m talking about…sigh…

See the screenshot below:

That script is injected at before the </body> tag, and I don’t know for sure what it does, it could be one of the following:

  1. Cookies stealing
  2. Redirect You to spoof websites
  3. Javascript Miner, this will consume your internet bandwidth and battery power.
  4. Keylogger
  5. Download malware to your browser

So that’s the price if your site doesn’t use https, it could harm your visitors. And please protect them, using https for your site is a mandatory!
