HTTPS Frustrates Russia's Attempt to Censor Wikipedia
« on: September 02, 2015, 09:23:21 PM »
Russian governmental media watchdog Roskomnadzor ordered Internet
service providers (ISPs) to block a page about hashish on Wikipedia.
However, Wikipedia uses HTTPS for all its sites, so the government
decided to order ISPs to block the entire Russian language Wikipedia
site. The site was briefly unavailable, but the block appears to have
been removed.
