If the https:// is crossed out and in red, there is a SERIOUS problem. Click the lock icon and tell us more. However, if it's grey, it's okay.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

+1, not sure what OP was seeing. Here are some screenshots to make the "external images" thing clear:



When I connect to my router, for example, it shows the red crossed out HTTPS because the router has an invalid self generated certificate.

One other reason I think it could show up potentially in your case is if you use OpenDNS or similar - when OpenDNS blocks some HTTPS content, the certificate is invalid because it is for the OpenDNS domain, and not the domain that was expected by the browser when fetching the resource. That could be what is happening to you.

Yesterday, on the front page, https was red and crossed out for me, but the only problem reported when clicking the lock was that the page includes resources that are not secure. Today, all is back to normal. I have no idea what that was about but it seems like the same problem that OP had. Windows 7. Chrome.

Chrome security indicators:

https://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95617

Red x with slash through https:

The site uses SSL, but Google Chrome has detected either high-risk insecure content on the page or problems with the site’s certificate. Don’t enter sensitive information on this page. Invalid certificate or other serious https issues could indicate that someone is attempting to tamper with your connection to the site


So perhaps one of the non https links on the page is on google's watch list for "high risk" sites...

Interesting, wonder what their secret formula for "high risk" sites is.

There shouldn't be an external resources loaded from the front page. Next time that happens, please send me the page's source.
