Recently, some Google Chrome users have been experiencing the following alert message when downloading files from Envato Market: filename.zip is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous (see below).
We believe this isn’t an Envato-side issue as it has been reported by other companies as well. Our Quality Team also thoroughly checks all items to ensure they are free from malware or any other dangerous material before they are approved for sale.
Our current theory is that the actual cause is a combination of two factors:
- The files contain code compressed within a zip archive.
- Chrome is detecting file URLs as not commonly downloaded because each purchase URL is unique.
Regardless, our devs are looking into the issue and hope to find a fix soon. In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
