Chromium browser blocks download of 0.48 live CD

Post by HAL2012 » Sat May 05, 2018 11:45 am

I am unable to download the reactos 0.48 live cd. Chromium blocks it as malware and there is no dialogue to allow override, at least from the buttons in the status bar. I will try downloading with firefox but I thought this needs to be reported and is there a way to force chromium to allow download? This is the version of chromium.
Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on LinuxMint 18.3 (64-bit)

Are you from our future? Or did you mean that you are unable to download the ReactOS 0.4.8 Live CD? :lol:

As of June 29th the issue isn't resolved, I've used both Chromium on Lubuntu 18.04 and Chrome on Windows 10, if I had to guess I'd say it's all the EXEs the live disc holds, one of the files must have something Google's servers don't like...

Chrome tells you why it's blocked. SourceForge is on Google's list of sites where malware is distributed.

FireFox isn't so careful.

SourceForge has been clean for awhile now, so it's chrome that's behind.

For anyone who wants to use Chrome to download the ISOs, here's what Google says for getting around the issue:
https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/99020

Edit: Also, FWIW, I just tested with the latest Chrome (Version 67.0.3396.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)) and got no errors/blocks.
