"Shopping with PC World is Safe and Secure" - discuss
I've just tried PC World's online site. Rrr, rrrrr, rrrrrrhuuu, rrrrrhhhhubbbbish!
"Shopping with PC World is Safe and Secure", or so they tell us.
Well in that case, why have a website where the whole series of order confirmation pages contain non-secure items, with a scary broken padlock displayed all the way through?
"Connection partially encrypted" as Firefox tells me. Not that they've heard of Firefox.
If you click on the link about secure online shopping, the Security pop-up dates back to the pre-Firefox era, urging you to update your browser if required to Internet Explorer 5.5 (5 for Macintosh) or Netscape Communicator 4.74. Gah!
If you buy a PC from them they will try to flog you crappy bundled security software, but they can't even take your most personal of details without seemingly broadcasting them to the world.
And whilst you're about it, they tell you when you're creaing an account that your site password should be between 6 and 12 characters long (or short - pitifully short...), whilst the normal website incorrectly actually quotes a 10 digit maximum...
... the whole thing looks like something hacked together for phishing purposes. Gits.
[must go. I'm not even meant to be here. but needed to rant]
