Windows Installers are not signed

I have downloaded ROOT binary installer from https://root.cern/download/root_v6.32.00.win64.vc17.exe. When running the executable Windows prompts that the executable is untrusted. Checking the executable shows that it’s not signed.

Question:

Is it possible to sign the executables to ensure that they haven’t been modified?

Maybe at the least provide some MD5 hashes on the website so that I can compare the downloaded executable to the hash?

Welcome to the ROOT Forum!
Thank you for posting, we are aware of the issue and working on a solution…

Great! Thanks for the update.
