Open Security File Warning - Publisher not verifiied
Posted on 2006-05-09
This problem is complex and hard because I have a service that spawns a thread that listens to queue. when a job shows up on the queue it is processed. Some of these jobs require the spawning of process. At this point the thread then activates a process thread and waits until done. The program spawned by the service in question has path \\myHost\utils.exe
The service runs on a windows 2003 server under the SYSTEM user with interactive checkbox checked off.
Can anyone help me to surpress the security settings causing the prompts
Open Security File
The Publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?
The file does not have a valid signature that verifies its publisher. You should only run software from publishers you trust.
How can I decide which software to run?
This popup window prompt appears as soon as an attempt to run \\MyHost\Vol\myprogram.exe
as SYSTEM in interactive mode from a service thread.
I expect this to be a hard one to resolve Here is what worked under an Admin user:: MyDomain\Ruler and its logged in user: Ruler
Note for such a user I did the following successfully, however, this being a system account:
System, I do not know how to configure the settings to not prompt in the above case under system. Under any domain user though I was successful in applying the following changes
for a domain user. Thus far I have not figured how to do this for the system user
I even tried running a scheduled cmd/k command in the Task scheduler as an at job
and running Internet Explorer as SYSTEM user and making the same settings as worked for a domain user usning the steps below;
In Internet Explorer itself
click on Tools
click on Internet Options
click on the security tab (2nd from the top left)
click on the Local Intranet zone
click on Advanced
Add the *.MyDomain.com
by entering the actual domain to be part of the intranet(should be your own domain or a highly trusted domain) and click on the add button imediately to the right of the text box for the domain entry.
** Note remove the the any duplicate trusted site (You can not add your domain unless it is not in the trusted sites)
Solution #2 is add the *.Mydomain to the trusted sites as follows:
Click on custom level
Scroll down until you come to the option:
Launching applications and unsafe files
Click on enable there and that is only for the list of trusted zones indicated since the custom level is for under the umbrella of trusted sites.
Any help would be appreciated in fixing this security prompting situation.
