[BLOCKED DOWNLOADS] on opensubtitles.org

Tue Dec 20, 2022 4:06 pm

Hi all

since few days SUBTITLE ZIP downloads are blocked in CHROME on opensubtitles.org. We are working to solve this issue, but it not depends on us (first we need to find out the cause, and contacting google is really hard...)

Anyway, workaround:
- use different browser
- use www.opensubtitles.com

Thank you

In firefox is also having problems.
I can only download it if i click on "allow transfer"

And with the warning:
This file can damage your computer.
This file is disguised as a utility download, but it will make unexpected changes to your programs and settings.

With Chrome, not only ZIP, but also SRT files of opensubttles.org are a problem.
With Firefox, only the ZIP files are a problem.
With Edge, everything is like before.

Temporary solution:
(Firefox) Do not download the ZIP file (the download button), but download only the single SRT file (by clicking on the SRT file name).
or
(Firefox) Allow the download manually with every single download.
or
Use Edge.

Warning:
It is possible to 'fix' the problem by changing security settings of the browser. But this setting will change all behavior of the browser for ALL websites and ALL downloads and thus will make your computer more vulnerable. This 'solution' is dangerous and NOT recommended.

i didn't know it was possible to download just an srt file. it's annoying as hell to get zip files even though there is only one srt in the zip file.

Hi oss, thanks for let us know.
I'm not sure if 'website reputation' got something to do with it, but today I have noticed some difference

►Website's reputation checked 12 day's: SCUMWARE Detected
►Website's reputation checked 11 day's: SCUMWARE Detected
►Website's reputation checked 10 day's: SCUMWARE Detected
► And it goes on and on...

Today's check seems to be fine,
►Website's reputation checked, today: Nothing Detected


Right now: 28-12-'22, ZIP files @ (FireFox) are still blocked.
Let's wait for some google refreshments...
I'll cross my fingers.

b.t.w.
Thanks and kind regards to 'oss' for the quick response
and sending the proof to the Google-temple.
The Google-temple is not always that fast.
