    Hey, I use HTTP Authentication on my website through a php script. I am wondering how secure/insecure that is?

    I have heard it isn't that hard if you know what you are doing to get passed it.

    This true?

    You can check out how I use it at mc0.cjb.net and go to admin.

    Thanks for all help and advice provided.
