  Amigaworld.net News : GDPR day is here
   posted by sibbi on 25-May-2018 7:47:33 (1163 reads)
Hello,

In light of the new GDPR regulations some changes have been made to the site to make us compliant.

First of all, there is new a link in the footer block of the site called privacy where you can at any time review our privacy statement, if you haven't already you should read it at this point

Second of all, if you are logged in, or proceed to log in to the site, you will have to accept the agreement before proceeding with your login, or logout.

Thirdly I've added a little text and a link to the new registration page (users upon registering and proceeding to login, will have to accept the agreement to continue the login process just like any user)

Once the agreement has been accepted the site will remember that you've accepted it and won't present you with it again, you should still view it periodically to make sure that we haven't made changes that you don't want.

Should you find any terms of the agreement unacceptable to you and wish to stop using the site and/or remove all identifiable information you should send us an email in the email address given on the privacy agreement page and we will deal with it accordingly

The fourth and final part of the compliance is that we'll have to move all site activity to https, this unfortunately means that the site will probably break on most of the classic Amiga browsers, we're very sorry about that but there is unfortunately nothing we can do to circumvent that part of the new regulations. This will happen today but we're giving a little notice so you aren't caught off guard when trying to use the site later today.

Enjoy your weekend,
Your Amigaworld.net team

I am not aware of any publicly available versions of Odyssey that have this feature enabled / implemented.

So I just tested this in IBrowse. First I noticed that I had been logged out and it had forgot my login. No doubt due to HTTPS and/or other changes. I was able to log back in fine.

I just spent time browsing forums and posting. It all seems to be working fine here over SSL so this is good. Note that I am running it on OS4 and AmiSSL is up to date.

The only issue I have encountered so far is speed. I thought my net speed had dropped but tested it as being fine. So page loads do have a bit of lag. It takes ages to load all the little emoticons and other things. Hopefully they can be cached. It's like being on dial up again. LOL.

Perhaps this a reminder that I shouldn't be using an emukated 68K browser. I really should be using Odyssey or the like. Old habits eh. I mean, I could make up a meme, that would apply to me.

"It's almost 2020 and I'm still using IBrowse!"

Happy to hear it still works with iBrowse, wonder if that is also valid for OS 3.9, does 3.9 have an up to date enough AmiSSL to browse the site without warnings or errors?

All.

AW.net seems to be working fine in AWeb (v3.5.12 OS4 PPC):

Also working fine in IBrowse v2.5 OS4 PPC (beta).

AmiSSL 4.2 is available for 68K also from Aminet. So if that is installed it should be fine.

Another work-around is to install a proxy (nginx on Linux, BSD, whatever) server on your LAN that can do the "heavy lifting" of modern SSL (and for that matter, IPv6), while presenting an old fashioned lightweight legacy SSL "*" (star - valid for "everything", valid from 1-Jan-1978 through 19-Jan-2046, haha!) certificate to your Amiga browser (on which you have installed the old legacy SSL CA certificate which the above was signed with). I say "on your LAN", because (for rather obvious security reasons) you want the proxy as close to your Amiga browser as you can - I use Raspberry Pi Zero, which not only is the proxy, it is also the NAT router and gateway for the Amiga.

I can't get this to unarc under OS3.9?

Edited: Broke the layout of the comment section due to some bug in the quote stuff that's been there forever but never fixed

Could you offer RSS feeds in plain HTTP still, please? Transition to HTTPS broke them on many RSS readers which don't support secure connections.

Many other sites make an exception with RSS feeds and still provide them in HTTP. For example Amiga Future, MorphZone, and some other Amiga related sites provide HTTP links for them.

Speaking of proxies, I managed to recover the code for the amiga.org old browser proxy.

In the event that it comes back as the same site under https, it should be trivial to modify the curl behaviour to have it retrieve https from the site but serve non https if old browsers don't like it. Since the only information it stores are temporary session cookies, I can see no meaningful GDPR issues.

@jpV
This hasn't occured to me, but yes that is not a problem since the news feed doesn't contain any sensitive information

I've added an exception to the https enforcement for the rss module, does it work now?

It still gets forwarded to HTTPS URL. I've been using this URL, which did work earlier: http://amigaworld.net/modules/newsfeed/news_rss.php

Yes, IBrowse 2.4 + AmiSSL 3.x is enough, as long as TLS is enabled as detailed. I tested it and it works fine.

It should be noted that AmiSSL 4.x will not get used by IBrowse 2.4, even if installed, as the OpenSSL API is different. IBrowse 2.5 will of course be using AmiSSL 4.x (no AmiSSL 3.x or MiamiSSL).

@klx300r

I just tested under emulation and I get files errors inside the archive. Wonder if LhA itself would be better. Could DOpus to do it easier.
