Default wacom site unsafe?

Could someone try this link for me

https://www.wacom.com/en-in/support/...upport/drivers


It is wacom's site to download their driver for my wacom tablet but when I try it on Firefox and also Edge I just get a message saying it is unsecure and to leave immediately!

The link works fine in Opera and Pale Moon scrimper. It's OK on my old version ~ 56.0.2 ~ of Firefox too. I scanned the site on VirusTotal via the VTchromizer extension on Opera and the wacom site gets the all clear:

Scan report for https://www.wacom.com/en-in/support/product-support/drivers at 2018-07-12 23:44:34 UTC - VirusTotal

Thanks for checking, the site loads OK but when I click the download button for the driver it shows the warning.

That's what I get when trying the download button in IE, although Norton didn't pop up with a warning.

I would click on the Contact tab and report it.

I contacted Wacom via their Facebook messenger they replied quickly and gave me another link, but trying it still gave the connection insecure warning!


Trying to update the driver via the auto update in the Wacom desktop software also fails!

Contact them again.

It's possible their security certificates are out of date.

I didn't get any warnings when trying the download links on either Opera or Vivaldi. The downloads would have worked if I'd left them!

Do those browsers have Windows Smart Firewall ?

Try it in IE.

The bloke from Wacom advised me later that they were in the process of updating their website which is why it won't work, he said try again later.
