Google Chrome blocks download of daily build

Reported by: wenzeslaus Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: Website
Component: Website Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: download, links, WinGRASS, security Cc: grass-dev@…, baharmon@…
CPU: Unspecified Platform: MSWindows 8

Description

The following binary download is blocked by Google Chrome web browser on MS Windows:

It works fine in the MS Internet Explorer. The latest release version works fine in Chrome. Looking at the URLs Chrome can be simply blocking non-HTTPS content. Probably just .exe files, I was able to download binary file from another non-HTTPS website.

Please see also #2807.

Unrelated: I'm using this occasion to see how Trac works with the Cc field because I still don't understand it.

Hi Martin: you could consider a free SSL Certificate. I have done that for some of my sites and can assist. It is a 10min effort.

I am not sure if I understand well. I installed on Windows 7 latest Chrome browser and tried the link you noted. I was able to download .exe files without any problem.

You understand. This is exactly what didn't worked. I guess it can be random depending on time and perhaps country. This was observed on two different computers on two different days.

I can confirm it, chrome says "wingrass....exe is malicious and Chrome has blocked it". Happened on Windows 10. Gives this link as explanation.

I just tried. It still thinks it's a virus.

WinGRASS-7.1.svn-r67314-21-Setup-x86_64.exe from both the http: and https: addresses are labled as viruses. Of course, our agency is behind a web proxy, so changes may be delayed.

I am now able to download from either the https and http addresses.

comment:10 by baharmon, 7 years ago

No, my mistake. The 7.1 downloads are still labelled malicious and blocked in Chrome.

I know this sounds weird, but I was just able to download the binary from http, but from https Chrome blocked it. I repeated it twice.

comment:14 by annakrat, 7 years ago
