Weblog entry #4 for PaulePanter
1. I wonder, if it is a good idea to enter the IP-address in for example /etc/apt/sources.conf or in the URL field of my browser when I want to visit my bank site.
2. Normally the SSL-certificates of my bank (https://www.bank.com/) are valid and so no pop up appears when I access their site through SSL. Do the certificates still protect me in the way, that there is going to be a warning, that the certificate is not valid, when I was redirected to a different (malicious) site (https://www.bank.malicios)? Or does this just work, if bank.malicious does not have a certificate which was signed by a trust agency (e. g. verigsign (?))?
Thanks for your comments and sorry for the question, but I did not understand this issue at whole.
