Issue: A recipient of a XLS padlock secured spreadsheet receives firewall warning despite a code sign certificate being applied to the file.
I created an excel spreadsheet and went through the following process:
turned off the firewall on my PC
commenced the build process
uploaded my digital code sign certificate when building the secure spreadsheet;
saved and closed the xls padlock generated spreadsheet
uploaded the secure spreadsheet to a dropbox account.
turned off the firewall on their PC
opened the dropbox account
attempted to download the protected spreadsheet
receives Pop up notice: "Windows Protected your PC etc
ran the exe file anyway
From a user experience I expected that no firewall warning would arise because I had applied Comodo code sign certificate.
I am wondering if I have failed to do something correctly or whether such warning notices will always occur?
Also, is it necessary for the Recipient and I to turn off the firewall protections?
