Certificate issue on https://download.mediamonkey.com

Post by PlainOldSteve »

http://download.mediamonkey.com/

Has an expired certificate. This is the link that is used when accessing the downloads directly from an update notification from the MM application (i.e. Help/Check for updates).

Here's the browser message...

See the download options: https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/ind ... st-version

Which version of MediaMonkey do you get this link on?

Hi,

Thanks for the heads-up. Looks like a misconfigured redirect.

In the meantime, you can access the same page via https://www.mediamonkey.com/download

EDIT: it's now fixed

Previous version of MM : MediaMonkey_4.1.28.1905.exe - tried the "internal" update option which failed gave the cert error, then used my normal method ("Existing Gold Users Click Here")
Current version of MM : MediaMonkey_4.1.29.1910.exe - this one is current so I no longer get the dialog box to update

It seems the cert is still expired (now 15 days). Proceeding to the link does take you to the usual download web page, so no big deal, just disconcerting in todays high cyber awareness atmosphere.

The link from with MediaMonkey to update should redirect to the correct location and does so for me (it's the http variant, if you use the https variant you get the security message).
