Download blocked by corporate firewall

Postby roarsome42 » Tue Apr 07, 2020 1:28 pm

I've been using WinMerge for a while and just went to the site to see if there's a newer version (using Firefox). I tried to download it and first received a warning from Firefox:
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to downloads.sourceforge.net. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

Knowing the corporate firewall would get in the way, if necessary, I proceeded and the site was blocked by the corporate firewall. Is there anywhere else this can be downloaded from?

Try downloading from GitHub instead, which is better than SF anyways.
