SHA1 security and expiry
« on: March 02, 2016, 12:16:06 pm »
If you have any 'old' setup routine from ourselves then it will be signed with a Comodo SHA1 code signing certificate.

SHA1 is being retired due to the possibility of being hackable in the near future. No new SHA1 certificates are being issued. Owing to changes by Microsoft and others these will no longer install after 01/01/2017 and you may get warnings during the installation until that time.

We will be recompiling our existing program setups with a Comodo SHA2 code signing certificate shortly. These will be available to all registered users.
