Drupal’s administration login area is not secure by default. Usually there is an option in the configuration area of content management systems to set a secure area for logins, otherwise your username and password are sent in plain text over the internet.

Luckily, there is a module which enforces secure login on a Drupal install.

  2. The link Drupal Module (http://drupal.org/project/securepages) is broken. I went through the Project/Securepages, all the links were broken too. If you can please suggest me a different site for the download or attach the module. I am desperately in need of this module.

    I am using Drupal 6 on IIS.

    best regards,

  3. Another Question.
