    Adobe Flash Player - What's the risk?

    Flash has had a series of security threats... perhaps more than their fair share.

    But the decision to allow Flash content to play has more to do with the amount of trust you have in the web site... and not the trust you have in the flash player.

    So, if you trust the web site, I'd select "Allow". But I wouldn't select "Allow for all web sites" since that would mean that flash content would play for every site.... whether I trust the site or not

  3. Error Code 85002028

    For the startcom SSL issue all you need to do is configure your phone to trust the startcom root cert. You can download the trusted root from startcom, email it to your phone, then install it by clicking on the phone..

    The following post explains how to do this

    Do you trust all HTTPS sites---The Rise in SSL-based Threats

    I noticed tenforums has gone https again.

    They tried it, it failed and went back to http. A year ago or so. Whatever was wrong was obviously resolved as now it is https again.

    No I don't think so it is a problem unless you are using Wi-Fi on an airplane or something.

    HTTPS is better than any alternative if you are happy with the network you are connected to is it not?

    These guys seem to think so anyway.

    tls - Is visiting HTTPS websites on a public hotspot secure? - Information Security Stack Exchange

    If you connect to an unknown network then you are vulnerable to any mitm and there is nothing you can do about it. I suppose in that case a Google certificate may not be from Google but self signed ones made up by Gogo. Gogo issues fake HTTPS certificate to users visiting YouTube | Ars Technica
