    Because of this, we are now embrace for possible future attacks that who wants to break the HTTPS ;)

    However that risk is so minimal due to this adjustment.

    @Secondmineboy: Wilderssecurity is already in the corner for many years but seems a quite surprise for their not in HTTPS since its a well established forum discussion site.

    Its not an excuse for possible expenses though. ;)

    I just found where is the problem here about getting so low rating... if in KTS2016MR0c I just disable the so called setting "Always Scan encrypted connections" at all (Do not scan encrypted connections), then I get the best rating:

    [​IMG]
    So the low rating is because the intervention of the certificate by Kaspersky Root Certificate, it seems They still using SHA-1 but SHA-256.

    A little off-topic but- about the wikipedia article, MalwareTips will not probably be notable enough to be posted as a website, or an organization. Please refer to this link for more information:

    Wikipedia:Article wizard/Website notability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And This One:

    Wikipedia:Article wizard/Company notability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So we could try, but since MalwareTips has not won any awards and is not a very large forum-based community compared to some huge communities, we probably are not applicable for a wikipedia article.

    Great news! No wonder why some counterpart websites didn't mind to make it secure as attacks are taken for granted always. ;)

    Regardless of the justification for this, it's great to see TLS being used.
