SSL Filtering Blocks Chrome Updates


Recommended Posts

Had issues updating to Chrome v56, it would just fail to connect. I uninstalled and re-installed Chrome eventually as a workaround (So I'm unsure then if SSL Filtering was the problem there).

But I found out today that navigating to chrome://components and attempting to update Flash etc. also has connection issues, pressing check update buttons causes the status to say downloading component but nothing happens.

Turning off ESET SSL Filtering fixes the issue, all components connect and download instantly.

Seems I'm always having trouble with your SSL Filtering feature. Is it really nessesary? What happens if I just leave it disabled? What other features depend on it?

I should add I always check to make sure the cert is imported and test https connections.

Disabling SSL/TLS scanning is not recommended as malicious https websites would not be blocked and POP3S / IMAPS / HTTPS scanning would not work either.

Are you able to open https websites alright, for instance https://www.youtube.com ?

Yes, I always check to make sure I can view https websites and the root cert is imported.

Just tested another machine running ESET Smart Security (other machine runs Internet Security) and Chrome, the update to v56 failed again. The components seemed to have been updated at some point on their own though.

I attempted to update Chrome and it showed as failed with the error "An error occurred while checking for updates: Installation failed. Please try again. (error code 7: 0x80040905 -- system level). "

However, closing Chrome and reopening showed that in fact it had updated 

"Version 56.0.2924.76 (64-bit) 
Google Chrome is up to date"
 
It seems that Chrome needs to restart to install the latest update.

Thank you SCR. Attempting to update Chrome also gave me "error code 7: 0x80040905". Following your comment, I restarted Chrome and the update took effect without further error message. I don't think I have rights to see whether my SSL filtering is on or off.
