Verisign seal sometimes means "no encryption"

Who takes charge when "secure" means "insecure"?

THE GRAPHIC seal from security firm Verisign should be a synonymous for security, for "peace of mind", or at least that's what the firm has been aiming for since the inception of the web. However, little seems to happen to those that display it yet seem to be an example of insecurity.... Front Page

And to think that I thought that the Verisign seal of approval meant something. Many potential purchases are history now. Jackasses.
When the world will be better.

The VeriSign Secured Seal simply means that the website has purchased their SSL certificate from VeriSign. That's all.

The VeriSign Secured Seal displays on pages in a domain secured by VeriSign SSL Certificates. When a browser points to a secured domain, a secure sockets layer handshake authenticates the server and the client and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. You can begin a secure session that guarantees message privacy and message integrity
