Major update : SSL encryption forms

Hello to all.

This is the last major update before money tournaments can start...

Now you can login through SSL encryption forms, meaning the best security to prevent hacking.

You should use SSL encryption forms only to browse the whole site with HTTPS, particularly if you wish to enter money tournaments later... It is also strongly recommended to change your password regularly (at least 8 characters, numbers & letters is best).

Thus you should always see HTTPS:// before the url after you login.

Feel free to follow this link for more advices about security & phishing :

FICGS now uses SSL data encryption, hash functions and a bunch of other security features...

4 login forms is a lot but thus anyone can connect, even with browsers that doesn't support HTTPS and Javascript.

Also a few minor bug fixes and improvements, komi updated in .SGF files, reinforced hash functions, last connection date displayed in profile and so on...

All feedbacks are welcome :)

Google ads

Notice : Ads by Google Adsense are no more displayed when you browse the site with HTTPS.

This may be a reason good enough to use the SSL encryption forms only :)

Chat and SSL

Hello, Is there a link between SSL and the chat window? What I type in the chat form does not appear anymore after sending.
Maybe it is my browser... I'll check that.

Chat and SSL

Ok, I reinit Opera passwd base (in french 'la baguette' :-)) and now it works fine!
I am not sure what happened, but the security increase is certainly worth it :-)
