Can't be Authenticated ? (Solved)
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:44:47 pm »
Hi Mark,
When I log on today I click on Updater in the Toolbar and it tells me that certain packages may be dangerous as 'They can not be Authenticated '.
What should I do  ? Ignore the warning ?

Hi Don,

It`s time zone data, I`ve got it as well. Seems to be all right with no problems. Internet assigned numbers authority.

Thanks wishbone,
I will carry on as usual then, although I see in the Wiki there could be a couple of updates per year and I have never seen this before.

take care
