    As I pointed out in another thread, only the viewing pages (news articles, forums, etc) use http

    Login and billing are still secured using https

    Unless you are inputting sensitive information into forum threads, your information is fine.
    Many popular sites function this way, including but not limited to:
    SMBC
    Imgur
    StackOverflow
    Steam
    DeviantArt
    Anything hosted on Wikia, including our own Maplestory Wiki
    Even my university's CSC department functions like this.

    Nothing a little dns2proxy and sslstrip2 on un-encrypted internet can't fix.

    I only say this because it only recently happened I believe. A lot of MMO websites have secure main pages and forums. I'm pretty sure Nexon did this also or at least on their main page.

    I can't find an https in my search history, and I never clear my history.
    Anyway, Steam does it so I don't mind much. If Gabe "Bathes in your money and tears" Newell can do it, it should be fine.

    If you get something like this, however, you should start to be worried.

    It's not a new thing.
    I remember people complaining that Nexon's site was http rather than https years ago.
    Maybe a new update to your browser is just now making it alert you about that.
