    I am reporting a potential security issue with the SiteFinity Administrative Interface.  The Frame from the bottom left corner of the SiteFinity Administration page is delivered via HTTP instead of HTTPS.   (This is the box that has the "Set Home Page", "Move Page Up"  and other options).  The frame has administrative capabilities that could be misused to alter the homepage.  The frame should be delivered via HTTPS with the rest of the admin control modules.  My client is using SiteFinity version 3.5.1747.

                Does SiteFinity have a bug reporting site that we could work with to get this issue resolved? 

               Has this issue possibly fixed in future versions?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Greg,

    The section you are referring uses LinkButton control which does not have a property that allows you to navigate to another page or view. The control has CommandName which value we use to execute certain operations inside SiteMapPanel control.

    You can force using SSL certificate for the entire backend by setting it over "Sitefintiy" folder through IIS server settings.

    Sincerely yours,
