Scotiabank finally fixed the HTTP problem.

I noticed today that Scotiabank had quietly sneaked out v17.7.4 of their Android app.

Amongst the list of improvements was the omission that Scotiabank had finally dumped the Enstream framework with the insecure HTTP (not HTTPS) connection to BWANET.CA (Bell Canada), that I've complained about since December 2016.

Whilst I still think Scotiabank is still highly dodgy, technically, and a horrible bank to be with, this fix does make mobile banking safer for all of Canada.
