Date Sun, 04 Mar 2012 23:24:49 GMT

             Bug #: 119017
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: The Windows installation file has missing properties
                    and lacks a code signature
    Classification: Application
           Product: Installation
           Version: OOo 3.4 Beta
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: code

Created attachment 77295
Typical empty Description Properties on AOO Windows install .exe files

Neither the r1293550 OOo-Dev 3.4 or OOo 3.4 pre-candidate developer snapshots
have completed property information on the downloaded .EXE.

In addition to any origin-identifying property information, there is also no
digital signature on the .EXE.

The consequence is the inability of a casual user to use the available Windows
provisions for verifying what the executable is described to be and what
authority signed the executable.  There is therefore no straightforward means
of learning that a code signature is not verifiable for any reason.

I note that the last OOo 3.3.0 that I have downloaded,
OOo_3.3.0_Win_x86_install-wJRE_it.exe is digitally signed by Oracle America,
Inc., was countersigned by a Verisign time service, and there is detailed
certificate information.  The Property Details are also omitted on the OOo
3.3.0 installer .exe.
