QUESTION: If a website has NO SSL on ANY WEBPAGE -- including the LOGIN-PAGE or any of the MEMBER-PAGES after a member logs-in -- BUT the website's Customer Service person says that the website is secure "because it sits on a secure server in a secure facility", is the website -- and any login-data or member-pages-data on the website -- TRULY SECURE?
In particular (for example), what would be the security -- or lack of security -- for logging-in (as a member) to this website: http://uspressassociation.org/page.php?18
Can log-in data, and member-pages-data, on a website that NEVER SHOWS SSL IN THE URL-BAR (and which NEVER SHOWS A "PADLOCK", etc.) truly be considered SECURE? Or is showing SSL an ABSOLUTE NECESSITY for website-security?
