Don't have a clue as to why, but I do know how to bypass it.

As much as it pains me to say it, Internet Explorer seems to be working for a temporary solution.

Same for Firefox, but you can just click "Open" after the download and it'll allow the download.

Been binging on some c3 downloads and ran into this issue today.


Appears to be a rule on *.storage.arubacloud.co.uk domains. C3 is using Aruba Cloud as their filehost. Likely being caused by some other malicious host on arubacloud's network.


The security block can be disabled in Firefox via:

Menu -> Options -> Privacy & Security tab -> uncheck 'Block dangerous and deceptive content'.

Then you should be able to download whatever you want without issues. I'd recommend re-enabling the option once you're finished your C3 download(s).

Tried this on Firefox and it seems C3U was blacklisted from Google's safe browsing API. IE probably doesn't use that. Looking at Google's standards I'm guessing the auto-download of an extensionless binary file isn't demed trustworthy. Or someone uploaded malware to the site but I'd be doubtful given the vetting process to enter.


I allowed it as an exception and it seems to have whitelisted the site. Maybe that's enough, maybe others have different issues.

You can bypass Chrome's warnings; if you click "Details" on the big red page, you can click through to "visit this site" and you'll reach the download page.


Of course, Chrome will then say the custom file itself is dangerous and try to stop you from downloading it, but if you open the Downloads tab (Ctrl-J) you can tell it to go ahead with the download.


But... yeah that's all pretty annoying, and more often than not Google's not too bad about blowing the whistle, and there's no way to whitelist C3 and keep the warnings on normally. There is, though, a means by which a site that's been marked can petition to no longer be flagged.
