Security warning

On the “What is the Arrow of light” page
the link " See our post on Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to learn how the programs work together."

The warning “Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to cubscouts.org. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details” is returned.

Someone needs to fix this on the server.

The BSA does not monitor these forums. I suggest you send an e-mail to myscouting@scouting.org to report the issue.

For network security BSA national has been moving non-secure connected websites to secure sites and consolidating website under the BSA home internet domain.

I suspect most modern web browser are now posting this error when they are connected to a http: site which is not secure as a https: site. It is normally used to indicate a https web site connection has connected to a http: site. Someone setting up a fake internet domain server on the internet is beyond the control of the BSA.

The cubscout org site has been out-of-date since the Cub Scouting program was updated. The non-secure http: site (provided you connect using a valid internet domain server) will now connect you to the Cub Scouting program web page, https://www.scouting.org/programs/cub-scouts/ .

The adult leader blog archive is now named the “cubhub blog”, https://www.scouting.org/cubhub/


There is outdated text, and are outdated links on the pages that were moved. For example, “Boy Scouts” needs to be changed to “Scouts”.

Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts

I did not find the replacement page for “Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts”. Anyone what it (and the link) is?
