Ghost Desktop 1.7.0 "Unknown Publisher" on Windows 10


#1

If you’re looking for some help, it’s important to provide as much context as possible so that people are able to assist you. Try to always mention:

  • What’s your URL? Localhost, sorry!
  • What version of Ghost are you using? Ghost Desktop 1.7.0
  • What configuration? NA
  • What browser? NA
  • What errors or information do you see in the console? Trying to run the installer and seeing “Windows protected your PC” then I click More Info link and see “Publisher: Unknown publisher” - I’m assuming this installer is… unsigned? I don’t know.
  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having? Using Windows 10 Version 1803 “OS Build 17134.228” - Run the Ghost Desktop 1.7.0 installer after downloading from the ghost website.

Am I the only one with this issue?

Is there anything wrong with the ghost exectuables not being signed? It doesn’t effect functionality and I assume it’s costly to sign a Windows exectuable.

Yeah, I don’t know. I’m here to bring awareness to the situation and ask what the dangers are. You tell me :slight_smile: Obviously it’s less trust-worthy to some extent, but mostly, it’s confusing and unsettling when Windows throws a popup warning you about the install you’re about to do. I trust the source of the download, but I wanted to post in case this wasn’t expected. Are these executables normally signed?
