    ok, bought a dsi a few days and wanted to buy an acekard 2i (I need an updated one, but shoptemp do not accept paypal).
    So I went to 0shippingzone and saw this.

    [​IMG]

    and at the login page I've got an certificate error. [​IMG]

    Anyone saw this? I'm not going to login there until someone says it's safe to (at this moment, of course).

    If it's IE, don't bother. Use FF.

    Nope I'm using FF and I get the same message.

    EDIT: Chrome, Opera & Safari also show the same message.

    That's strange... It's probably not a hack, but something along the lines of incorrect setting changes that were made to the website.


    I wouldn't recommend buying anything from them, for now.

    It's their server which is writing that message, not your broswer. It's a warning to them.

    but looks like anyone with the basic skills could access that file.

    and the certificate error popped up entering the login page.

    Have you emailed them to let them know?

    ShopTemp do accept PayPal, I believe you select manual payment. After what happened with DX and FP, they may be trying to keep that on a low profile.

    I read at the help page that Shoptemp do accept paypal, but I've got an issue. I can't checkout with free shipping and the only option is express at US$28. Almost double the price of my order. I opened a ticket, because I never had a single problem like this with a Honk Kong site before. And I, innocent, was planning to buy with the standard (registered) shipping for only 2,50..

    I meant has someone emailed 0ShippingZone to let them know they have an issue?

    There was a site on here previously that got loaded with viruses, presumably the same thing could happen to 0SZ if someone with knowledge comes across their site.

    The same thing happens when you go to realhotstuff.com. Aren't they the same company? I wonder whats going on.
    EDIT: Not anymore it seems. I just went there yesterday and it had that message.

    Yes, it appears both are run by Ron Wang.

    Take a look at the other websites hosted on 0ShippingZone's IP, view the WHOIS information.
    http://sameip.org/ip/174.141.228.149

    Also

    Nameserver records returned by the parent servers are:

    ns1.realhotstuff.com. ['174.141.228.149'] [TTL=172800]
    ns2.realhotstuff.com. ['174.141.228.179'] [TTL=172800]

    Nameserver records returned by the parent servers are:

    ns1.0shippingzone.com. ['174.141.228.149'] [TTL=172800]
    ns2.0shippingzone.com. ['174.141.228.179'] [TTL=172800]

    Edit:
    Here's a 3rd site run by Ron Wang
    http://kimotrading.com/
    And it has the same issue as 0ShippingZone.

    IP of RHS 174.141.228.184
    IP of Kimo 174.141.228.183

    It's nameservers are the same as RHS's.

    Kimo Trading owns 0shippingzone..

    I received an e-mail about the shipping issue with Shoptemp.. They do not ship via standard airmail to my country, so I just entered shippingzone and bought the acekard there, registered and insured (added $3.50). Thought about the "security problem" and it's not so unsafe, since I paid via paypal and could get a refund if something went wrong.

    Thank you all, guys and girls, and daddys [​IMG] , for helping me in this harsh quest. Kisses [​IMG]

    That message is either just some internal server maintenance where a guy forgot to comment a message to another admin when he was working on the page, or some kind hacker dude warning the site staff that they're hackable and to fix the issue. People do that.

    it was my first thought xD
    But it seems my purchase was safe, since I paid via paypal. Unless they hacked 0shippingzone's paypal account xD
