Security Question

P: n/a
I've been reading the 'security' links at the bottom of some web sites
- they talk about usernames and especially passwords being sent
securing over the internet.

These are sites that us http and not https as I view them - are they
talking about another form of secure transmission (other than https)
or do they mean when passwords are sent to their server they change to
https and then back to http?

As far as I know, https is the only way to transmit secure data over
the internet...

Thanks...

Yeah most sites change over to https for the login, then go back to http
mode after.
