How to bypass IE security banner to prevent file download

10 posts in this topic

Goal of script

To automate downloading the latest version of Malwarebytes from download.cnet.com

Problem

I am trying to use _IELinkClickByText() to click on the 'Download Now' link on the cnet page and Internet Explorer shows the following warning at the top of the browser:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options..."

If I add 'http://download.cnet.com' to the trusted sites list, then the script starts acting odd and the ClickByText calls

no longer get triggered.

I would appreciate it if someone could guide me a bit on how to either:

1) Automate clicking on the IE file download security banner at the top to let the download continue -or-

2) Understand why the script starts acting so odd when I add the website to the IE Trusted sites list

Thanks!

#include <IE.au3>

;
; MALWAREBYTES - Download latest from CNET
;
$begin = TimerInit()
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=malwarebytes+anti-malware&platformSelect=Windows&tag=srch&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows")
$dif = TimerDiff($begin)
MsgBox(0,"Time to run _IECreate()",$dif)
;MsgBox(0,"Press OK when ready", "Returned from _IECreate call")

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware")
_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Download Now")

; When the 'Download Now' button is clicked by the line above, Internet Explorer shows the following warning at the top of the browser:
;
; "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer.  Click here for options..."
;
; If I add 'http://download.cnet.com' to the trusted sites list, then the script starts acting odd and the ClickByText calls

This is what's in the SciTE log when I run the script (with the URL in the trusted sites list)

Thank you for your reply.

So, does adding the domain to the Trusted sites list not do anything? Do I have to try to make registry edits programmatically(every time I run my script) as you've detailed for it to work?

Thanks

I modified the line for alloweddomains to add both 'download.cnet.com' and 'cnet.com' and confirmed that the registry entries were made and when I run the below script, the confirm download banner still appears. Hmm.. Note that I am running Win 7 Ultimate if that makes any difference.

Any continued ideas on this would be welcome.

Thank you

Thanks for your follow-up reply on this wakillon. Whoa! That's a lot of registry mods needed to accomplish a download from a trusted site. I am guessing I'm going to need this solution again sometime soon as I'm starting to work on a few scripts. For now, I'm going to move forward with your more direct Inetread/InetGet download solution which doesn't require bringing up IE at all.

Much appreciated!

Thanks, Glad to help you !

there is often an alternative solution with AutoIt

but it must search and find it...

Flipping through the thread, I can quickly tell you adding the site to the "trusted" list does NOT work on my Win7/IE8 box. It just restarts the browser and I lose connection to the site when the script starts. Very annoying.

Goal of script

To automate downloading the latest version of Malwarebytes from download.cnet.com

Problem

I am trying to use _IELinkClickByText() to click on the 'Download Now' link on the cnet page and Internet Explorer shows the following warning at the top of the browser:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options..."

If I add 'http://download.cnet.com' to the trusted sites list, then the script starts acting odd and the ClickByText calls

no longer get triggered.

I would appreciate it if someone could guide me a bit on how to either:

1) Automate clicking on the IE file download security banner at the top to let the download continue -or-

2) Understand why the script starts acting so odd when I add the website to the IE Trusted sites list

Thanks!

Don't use CNet.com, although they used to be a reputable source now I don't trust them.  They've put too much spam out there.  Use Filehippo.com, they don't add spyware to their install packages.
