Bitsum Switches to Dual-Signed Binaries

Bitsum Logo

We’re now switching to dual-signed binaries across the board to comply with the latest security standards, while continuing to retain support for Windows XP.

This means our binaries will have two digital signatures, though you’ll only see one in the Properties. The two will be SHA1, and SHA2 (256).

This is part of a continuing industry-wide deprecation of SHA1, and has applied to everything from digital code signing to SSL (TLS) certificates.

Special thanks to team member BenYeeHua for keeping us on our toes with regards to this!
