Shipping News and information / El. Venizelos fire

Hi all,

Several media outlets are reporting that a fire broke out onboard Anek Lines

It was my understanding the site is now safe.

My iPad also says this site is not secure and the apple security is NOT the same as Microsoft or malware bytes.

The only reason the iPad says that when you log in is because this website does not use HTTPS and thus communication between your iPad and the server is not encrypted. This has nothing to do with an actual security problem, the browser is just pointing out to you that the website doesn't use HTTPS (a number of browsers are doing this now).

My misses has no problems with shipping as a hobby. That said I did move a 45 min drive away from the coast for work so most of my "shipping time" is spent here as a photo admin on this website.

Very sad news, my condolences to his family.

I too would like to wish Ken a speedy recovery and hope he gets well soon!

Kind regards

My condolences to his family, his pictures were always excellent.

I had no issues here logging in a few minutes ago (Chrome on macOS).

Marine Traffic, Vessel tracker, FleetMon, etc., offer some sense/form of security with the ubiquitous padlock symbol displayed when visiting their sites.

That padlock symbol is doesn't mean that much anymore and can't guarantee safety on its own. It just means traffic to and from the server is encrypted so anyone snooping in on network traffic is can't intercept the data being sent. An https site could have the same problem if its servers were also affected.

Sorry, but I am no computer nerd and don't really understand all this Coinhive stuff. I have always used Windows 10 and Chrome with an AdBlocker and have never noticed anything unusual when uploading photos. Would I be best to refrain from posting pics until this thing is sorted out?

Hi Bob, you'd probably notice if this stuff was running. It uses all the available CPU power so your computer would bog down a bit or the fans would come on. It should be fine if you have Coinhive blocked in AdBlock or if you use a Chrome extension which blocks Coinhive as recommended by Cody. So normally no problems if you haven't already noticed it.

Kind regards

Thanks for the update Cody and David. I hope the issue gets resolved soon, CPU usage is so high that I can hardly scroll through pages after a while.

Kind regards

I did notice very high CPU usage on this page, despite not seeing the ads with an adblocker.

I also use a Mac and I have a Nikon D3300 which goes above the max. file size and resolution for this website.
To resize them, I use the standard Photos app which Apple supplies with each Mac.
With the export function - which you can find under "File" in the menu bar - you can export a resized version of your picture.
When exporting you can also select the size (= resolution) of the exported picture from a number of presets or a custom resolution of your choice.
Additionally you can also choose the JPEG quality to limit file size.

I hope this is useful for you.

Kind regards

If you have a Mac the iCloud Photo Library is also very easy to set-up and has worked very reliably for me.

Kind regards
