    Proactive reinstallation of Vers 4.4 indicates Thawte's certificate expired 5/20/11. I'm sure you are aware of this, will you be renewing the cetificate shortly or are the admin burdens of the process delaying activation?

    Hi,

    Are you referring to the certificate used to digitally sign the currently-available setup file? (i.e. spywareblastersetup44.exe)

    If so, the digital signature on that file should still validate without issue, as it includes a timestamp. (i.e. The file was digitally signed within the certificate's validity period.)

    Best regards,

    -Javacool

    I'm not sure this is related, as I actually haven't verified why such was happening, but I downloaded SpywareBlaster (latest version) from Softpedia yesterday, and UAC presented me with an unsigned application.

    Most likely due to what pinktuxedo mentions?


    I finished downloading from Cnet and it's digital signed. I'm going to download from Softpedia and see if the hash matches. I wonder why the file I downloaded from Softpedia wasn't signed o_O

    -Edit-

    OK. The hashes do not match!! This file here -http://download1us.softpedia.com/dl/58c222295fd53170186eeb1c4e3081a3/4e0a54ab/100004701/software/antispy_popup/spywareblastersetup44.exe does not have the same hash value has the one provided at Javacool Software website http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/sbdownload_free.html

    The hash from Javacool site is F2C9F6EBAEB959507511A163EF3B3F5A

    The one from Softpedia is 28ef9894fc6cda92189babf194bbf907

    No match...

    WTF? Softpedia's file clearly has been .... touched...
