Non-secure link used in program update message

Post by oledole » Fri Mar 06, 2020 12:54 pm

When trying to download the 15.1.0 version of MakeMKV my browser protection from F-secure blocks it. I reported it as a false positiv at their site (https://www.f-secure.com/en/business/su ... t-a-sample), but is it? :)

Where did you see the link using http instead of https?

F-secure is quite right to flag that link when you use http!

Ahh, didn't spot that - it's the link I clicked in the client. Good catch!

Then we need to bop Mike on the head for not updating that... :)

If I recall, that link is not hard-coded in the application itself, but pulled from the website when the version is checked. But, Mike will know for sure. I'll change the subject of this topic to catch his attention.

Seems that https wasn't the problem, still get's that warning.
