I know you solved this issue, but just for any other people in the future I had the exact same issue and my solution was that an OM (via email) had to send me a different direct download link than the one on their website, to redownload the client.

I think this is an issue OMs need to take a look at.

Was this the link? It's the full installer so contains everything rather than download it.

It's basically the same link, I think.

http://download.threerings.net/yoclient/puzzlepirates-fullinstall.exe

It's not. We are no longer threerings.net so that link - even if it's available now - is not content supplied by us.

The link was literally provided to me on 1st November 2020 in a support email signed by Hera. So unless you are claiming you changed over since then, it was provided by you guys.

Here is the email:

So I was going to investigate the SSL certificates of these sites and figure out whether threerings.net was still legit or not. It's a bit complicated.

Both of the links cited above specify "http" which is dangerous and sloppy in 2021. Please use https for all web traffic, it is very near being absolutely enforced by browsers.

In switching the protocol to "https", I found the following:

threerings.net has a valid wildcard certificate which expires on February 28 (that's two days from now.) This certificate is evidence that threerings.net is legitimate, and protects downloads from being tampered with in mid-stream (MiTM attacks). Your connection between your client and threerings.net is encrypted and secure.

Unfortunately, the story is not the same for greyhavens.co. In attempting to connect to greyhavens.co via https, the connection was blocked by my browser, Google Chromium, which says the CN is invalid. This means that greyhavens.co is squatting on the certificate issued to threerings.net. Grey Havens has no certificate of their own.

Is greyhavens.co a legitimate site run by who they say it is? We have evidence of this from Ocean Masters and devs, so yes, but the certificates are extremely problematic, and will prevent 99% of users from connecting securely, and therefore there can be no guarantee that the data downloaded from the supposed greyhavens.co is intact and uncorrupted by the time it reaches our clients.

By the way, as of this writing, download.greyhavens.co and download.threerings.net refer to exactly the same host. They are CNAME records for a cloudfront.net host which has multiple A records, and all four of the ones I received are the same, in round-robin order.

So yes, Demeter, download.threerings.net does serve "content by you" and if you think about it, right now, if we're using https, it's safer to visit threerings.net for a valid certificate than going to greyhavens.co with the wrong certificate.

I suggest, that before the threerings.net certificate expires in 48 hours, that greyhavens.co applies for one of their very own from Amazon. I hope it is not too difficult to prove to them that you are who you say you are, because we would also like to believe you. Thanks.

We recently updated all our bookmarks and shortkeys. I recommend to do the same. While both links work, the greyhavens full installer link is preferred.

My guess was maybe that response in the email was copy and pasted and just hadn't been updated to the GreyHavens link yet.
