Description kpalagin 2006-08-28 17:54:38 UTC
Please sign OO installer with digital certificate from commercial certificate 
authority to reassure users. Without such signing users get warning
"The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this 
software?" and may cancel installation.

Signing with a digital certificate might also mitigate the risk of an attack
based on DNS spoofing like the one described in
since the user will be able to check that the file he downloaded is indeed
coming from (even if we can do very little about this kind of
attack unless we make the Update Notification mechanism more secure).
Comment 9 kpalagin 2008-09-06 20:10:08 UTC
Apparently we are going to miss 3.0 fot this issue.
