Windows Defender SmartScreen objects to installation?


#1

Maybe this is a new feature of Windows Defender because I’ve never seen it before since I started using Windows 10 well over a year ago. Has anyone else gotten this warning? It’s possible to override if you click on “More info”.

Assuming you downloaded from https://www.shotcut.org/download/ then I’d ignore it.
If not, then I’d (re)download from https://www.shotcut.org/download/

What version of Shotcut did you try? Some recent versions had an expired code signing certificate that might be causing this. The latest version 17.09 includes a new certificate that expires in 2020. If you got this with that latest version, then it might be a result of a new download that requires a reputation to develop on the Microsoft servers:

It’s the latest version from the website: 17.09.04. I guess it might be the reputation thing.

Same OS as mine. Here are some additional characters to meet the arbitrary quota.
