PlusNet Sign-up page is unsecured !

All you details you enter when you sign-up to plusnet (full name, Address, telephone number, username, password etc) are all sent on an unencrypted link.

News report about it today .....

Bit naughty really - not hard to configure the page to be secure is it.

Yeah that's poor.

Perhaps even worse is that their POP3 server has no encryption, so every time the customer checks for new email their password is sent unencrypted. Nice.

Well, everyone needs to have their USP, something to differentiate them from the competition.

Along with all the other Fred Karno rickets, it all goes toward being voted top honest provider on some sites.
