HTTPS Scanning

Q: HTTPS Scanning

Hello. I posted this in the Avast forum, but I know some of you are gurus in here too so? Just today I started getting "Your Connection Is Not Private attackers might be trying to steal your information when opening Chrome to my homepage Start.me or going to a few different "reputable" websites. Not Secure is in the search field to the left of the URL address. When I remove the check mark from enable HTTPS scanning under Web Shield everything works fine again. At first I thought it may be Zemana AntiLogger, so I shut it down and wasn't running it in real time. Maybe a recent update? I think there was a problem like this a few years ago with Avast HTTPS scanning and Firefox, but it was corrected after an update. Just curious if anyone else has had this happen? I don't like leaving it unchecked. It works OK with the Edge browser, but I don't have Firefox installed. I also disabled the Avast Online Security extension, but it didn't help. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: HTTPS Scanning

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Internet users with basic security knowledge are aware that they should look for the padlock icon in the address bar or the HTTPS in a web address to indicate that a website is secure. We have gotten used to seeing it on bank sites or shopping carts where we input our credit card information. More and more, regular websites are making the switch from unencrypted HTTP to encrypted HTTPS. Last year, search giant Google sweetened the pot by adding HTTPS to their ranking algorithm. That action encouraged webmasters everywhere to make the switch to HTTPS.

But is HTTPS really more secure than HTTP?
The simple answer is not always. As more and more online services are moving to HTTPS, attacks are increasing. An encrypted connection ensures that the connection cannot be modified by anyone else, but it does not guarantee that the actual content being downloaded is safe. Just as with plain HTTP, if a legitimate website is hacked, malware scripts and binaries can be placed into the HTTPS page that appears to be safe.

That?s why it is imperative for security software to check this attack vector. To address this, Avast?s trusted Web Shield technology scans HTTPS sites for malware and threats.

How Avast?s HTTPS scanning feature works (the short version)
Avast is able to detect and decrypt TLS/SSL protected traffic in our Web-content filtering component. To detect malware and threats on HTTPS sites, Avast must remove the SSL certificate and add its self-generated certificate. Our c... Read more

Source--------- http://www.ghacks.net/2014/10/31/avasts-https-scanning-interferes-with-firefox-and-other-programs/
Avast released its 2015 lineup recently and one of the new features that all of its antivirus programs ship with is HTTPS Scanning.

It enables the program to detect and decrypt protected traffic using its web filtering component. This alone is highly problematic considering that the program is tapping right into protected data streams but the current implementation is causing all kinds of issues on top of that.

Firefox users for example may notice that the browser won't close anymore because of Avast's HTTPS Scanning feature. This may not happen all the time when Firefox is closed but users reported that it is happening frequently.

That's however not the only issue that Firefox users may experience if Avast is installed on the computer system the browser is running on.

Firefox's add-on update check may be blocked by the security software as well.

The Mozilla Firefox web browser is not the only program that is affected by issues though. Spotify's Web Player may not be able to connect to Spotify for example with Avast 2015 running on the system.

That is OK with me as i do not like Avast anyway.

Hello everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread.
Today, I want to ask you about HTTPS Scanning feature provided by anti-malware solutions for consumer.

For example, Bitdefender Internet Security 2018 has a feature which was named "HTTPS Scanning" for scanning malware incoming through HTTPS (SSL) traffic of browsers.
I am using Bitdefender on one of the my PC and this feature is working correctly on my PC now.

By the way, when I turn on this feature, the SSL certificates of each websites are replaced with a fake certificate provided by Bitdefender.
This is not good for me to confirm correctness of the website.
Especially, the websites, which are having EV-SSL including corporate name are not able to be confirmed by me.

But some anti-malware solutions (e.g. Avast Free, F-secure, and more) are providing HTTPS Scanning feature without replacing with the fake certificates by them.
These solutions are not preventing original certificates like EV-SSL.
It is very good for me to confirm the web site.

AV-Comparatives's Real-World Test is judging some security solutions on default configure of them.
And, "HTTPS Scanning" feature of Bitdefender is enabled as default setting.

Question 1:
Should I turn on "HTTPS Scanning" provided by anti-malware solutions for consumer PC?
In these days, many websites (... even dangerous and fraud websites) are preparing HTTPS (SSL) connection for access users.

When I first bought my CanoScan 8800F and set about scanning my old slides I was a bit enthusiastic and scanned at the default resolution. The resulting images, when printed, were poor quality. I have now started re-scanning all 124 slides at 4800dpi (or is it ppi?). The trouble is that when I enhance them or change their sizes Photoshop takes ages to complete the operation. Should I scan at 4800 or 2400 then resize the images to 600 before doing any enhancing? Is there some way to scan slides so that they print at an acceptable resolution but do not involve hours of waiting? I also want to burn the scanned images to a DVD.

Oh dear, nope, it's not true, https connections are just for passwords, websites come across encrypted in https mode and decrypted when the site gets a handshake from your pc, it's just a more secure way of entering form info and passwords, but to be honest, if your computer isn't secure on the virus front, the https connection is irrelevant.

Hello.
I'm running W10 and IE11. Earlier my internet connection went down but now has come back up. There is a noise problem on my line and the disconnection is expected behaviour. But, since the connection came back my browser will only access https capable sites, no http. This is a pain because a lot of my Favourites are http only. As a matter of fact, even some https sites wont download. There are far too many of these instances to be just sites going down etc. Does this sound like a setting has changed somewhere, or maybe could the poor connection be causing an issue, even though everything was working as normal until the system went down for a while, and the noise problem is not new.

Security has always been critical to the web, but challenges involved in site migration have inhibited HTTPS adoption for several years. In the interest of a safer web for all, at Google we?ve worked alongside many others across the online ecosystem to better understand and address these challenges, resulting in real change. A web with ubiquitous HTTPS is not the distant future. It?s happening now, with secure browsing becoming standard for users of Chrome.

Today, we?re adding a new section to the HTTPS Report Card in our Transparency Report that includes data about how HTTPS usage has been increasing over time. More than half of pages loaded and two-thirds of total time spent by Chrome desktop users occur via HTTPS, and we expect these metrics to continue their strong upward trajectory.
Percentage of pages loaded over HTTPS in Chrome

As the remainder of the web transitions to HTTPS, we?ll continue working to ensure that migrating to HTTPS is a no-brainer, providing business benefit beyond increased security. HTTPS currently enables the bestperformance the web offers and powerful features that benefit site conversions, including both new features such as service workers for offline support and web push notifications, and existing features such as credit card autofill and the HTML5 geolocation API that are too powerful to be used over non-secure HTTP. As with all major site migrations, there are certain steps webmasters should take to ensure that search ranking tra... Read more

I wasn't sure whether to post this in Networking or here, so I did both. I apologize in advance if I should not have done so...


1) Assuming I have my own web server, how difficult is it to set up an https page?

2) Is it possible to set up an https page so that (non-secure) http pages would load in a frame such that the insecure data gets transmitted securely?

The impetus for this is that I when I access certain webpages from work - my personal (web-based) e-mail being a prime example - I *really* don't like the thought that members of our corporate IT department have clear, unencrypted access to my (personal/private) e-mail/data/etc.

I know there are remote access programs that would allow me to tunnel in to my machine at home, but our firewall at work is very restrictive.

There must be some way to do this...

A:Questions about https

I don't believe that you can do what you want.
To setup the HTTPS you need either a certificate issued by an trusted authority, or you can generate one on your webserver and just have to "accept" the security warning everytime, or install it on every machine you want to "trust" the site. As far as encrypting the unsecured data, it stays unsecured unless you use vpn software (very difficult if you have ports blocked on a company firewall) ]

Maybe you could setup some type of remote desktop running on port 80 on your home machine. Then use your machine's browser to access your email. To do this may require software that your company may not allow.


Being one of "those" IT guys: (not to offend, just offer my two cents)

1. I wouldn't have time to even try to capture packets or screen shots of every person that works at my job.

2. Unless they were suspective of doing something (wasting company time, resources) not appropriate, would they even ask that this task be done.

3. Most companies let you know up front that they "can" and "will" go through electronic transmissions, but rarely would do something so drastic.

4. If you don't want people to "see" it, then maybe you could wait to do it at home or an internet cafe (which is far worse than your work!)

Hi, Please help how to block the https prtocals in cisco router??

A:Block Https

I'm not sure about blocking the protocol, but I believe it runs on TCP port 443, which you could block. I'm not so good with networking, though, which is probably where this should be, so I can't say that's a guaranteed fix. May I ask why you want to block it? Blocking that could cause legitimate sites to stop working, and would keep you from using secure logins on any sites you may need people on your network to use, which would make them more vulnerable to password sniffing and such. If you are just looking to block a few sites that use HTTPS, you should probably try to find another fix. Just my $.02.

Hello, I'm new here and I want to apologize for any mistake in my English. It's not my native language. Please guys, be patient with my English and hope you try to understand what I'm talking about.

Well, I have the latest Firefox version and want to know why Firefox always lost the https connection with secure websites? In the latest version (36.0.1) it seems became worse than previous versions. What I'm saying is that websites that use https, in Firefox for some reason it can't stay with the secure navigation always on, because the lock icon became a ! (exclamation) icon and always says the webpage is not encrypted at all.

Other browsers don't do this and always stay with https on. So what's the problem with Firefox? I like this browser but this issue is pissing me of.

A:Question about https

No mistakes, and a good question that I also would like to know, mainly because I hadn't ever checked.
You are aware that many sites only use HTTPS for the secure logon and revert to none secure for the rest of the site.
I will have to check this next time I go to my bank site.

Windows XP SP3 x32
IE 8
This is a legacy system that I have to keep running.  Suddenly, I cannot reach any secure (HTTPS) web sites.  This is a problem since Windows Update requires IE.  (I have applications running on this system that are still getting updates.)
I can access secure (HTTPS) web sites using Firefox but windows update does not work properly with it.
I have tried clearing the SSL slate, resetting all options to the default.  All add-ons are disabled. 

I though I could uninstall and reinstall it using add/remove programs\windows features but that only removes the shortcuts.
Any suggestions on how to get IE 8 working again with HTTPS would be appreciated.

When I enter my email address at https://haveibeenpwned.com/, it tells me that I have been poned 5 times.
What exactly does that mean?
What kind of action should I take?
Is it really necessary to change passwords?
And if s,o for the website listed or something else? (please see examples below LinkedIn and PHP Freaks)

I have read the article at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Have_I_Been_Pwned?
but it has only made the issue more confusing.

Thanks for you help.

Here are 2 of the 5:
1.
LinkedIn: In May 2016, LinkedIn had 164 million email addresses and passwords exposed. Originally hacked in 2012, the data remained out of sight until being offered for sale on a dark market site 4 years later. The passwords in the breach were stored as SHA1 hashes without salt, the vast majority of which were quickly cracked in the days following the release of the data.
Compromised data: Email addresses, Passwords

2.
PHP Freaks: In October 2015, the PHP discussion board PHP Freaks was hacked and 173k user accounts were publicly leaked. The breach included multiple personal data attributes as well as salted and hashed passwords.

Compromised data: Dates of birth, Email addresses, IP addresses, Passwords, Usernames, Website activity
 

A:https://haveibeenpwned.com/

Just change the passwords for the sites mentioned. And if the same password is used at any other site, change that too, because hackers will try the compromised password first.

Suddenly I can't download videos because they all start with HTTPS. Is it something I did or can I do something to change that? An example:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=C-SllzH8D4A (link sent to me by e-mail
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ4fAO36-L4 (with a padlock before the address. I Googled it.)

I seem to be locked out!
