Download site blocked due to malware

Post by rp42 » Mon Mar 07, 2016 2:40 pm

The corporate firewall here is blocking http://downloads.codelite.org/downloads.php?osx_gh because it is considered to be malware.

The system is using Senderbase to determine this, and the site has a "poor" reputation there:
https://www.senderbase.org/lookup/?sear ... nloads.php

Has the download site been infected with some malware, or is Codelite itself somehow considered malware by this system?

I guess I can build from source instead, but that might take a while.

In general, I don't trust all these "firewall" technologies trying to be smarter than the average person, so the feeling is mutual ;)

Never heard of them, I don't know how they decide which website is poor and which is OK and I really don't care about it.

No malware in CodeLite

Strange, but this URL:
http://codelite.org/downloads/downloads.php?osx_weekly is OK

while this:
http://downloads.codelite.org/downloads.php?osx_weekly is NOT OK

NOTE:
they are both the same URL (the latter is using Apache's virtual host)

So use the second URL to fetch CodeLite for OSX

OR:
You can try and download directly from the GitHub mirror:
https://github.com/eranif/codelite/releases/tag/9.1
