The only problems encountered so far are related to anti-virus solutions and behavior analysis components present in some security solutions. Please read this page carefully before downloading and installing the BMProduction Framework and the Products that use it.
BMProduction guarantees the integrity of its Products by digitally signing the main components and above all the setup package with three digital signatures. In addition it provides the SHA1 hash of the setup file on the download page in order to allow the user to check the integrity of the downloaded products. Again with the aim of simplifying these verification procedures, it makes available, among the components of the Framework, a Tool with a completely free graphic interface for extracting and checking hashes.
1. BLOCKING DOWNLOADS BY THE BROWSER
Some browsers, when downloading software from some sites, block the download by showing a security warning explaining that "you are downloading from a little-known site" or something similar. According to these systems, a software is reliable or it is not, only on the basis of how big the company that produced it and therefore small-medium enterprises or free developers always produce "suspicious" things. It would be different with a block or warning based on a scan of what that software actually does.
2. ANALYSIS OF BEHAVIOR BASED ON CYBER-CAPTURE OR SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY
Some security solutions, including some antivirus software such as AVG or AVAST, implement a technology for analyzing suspicious application behavior called Cyber-Capture. Similar solutions may be in use in other software. The operating principle of this system is to start each application inside a sandbox and then analyze what that application has done. If the analysis concludes that the software is not dangerous, the software is closed and re-executed but this time out of the sandbox.
3. POSITIVE FALSE IN ANTIVIRUS PRODUCTS
Some antivirus solutions detect viruses where they are not. Good software houses generally correct these false positives as they are detected in the updates of the subsequent definitions, thanks to the possibility of reporting a false positive online or to the antivirus software itself which uploads it to the company's servers. Unfortunately there are also software houses that do not correct these false positives, making it difficult for users to use different software.
