They can't sign their EXE's because it costs too much money.
I've been on HelioHost for a little while now and have developed some of the web services. I use PHP, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, Python, Django & more to develop my websites and apps over at Bailey.guru.
Check out the new server monitor!
I maintain the monitor, wiki, GitHub and the Discord server along with other projects located on GitHub.

Yeah, code signing is stupidly expensive, and there's no such thing as Lets Encrypt for code signing (yet). I do sign the two core binaries in the program (RGSBroker and HelioTray) to get rid of the scary yellow "Unverified Publisher" warnings you get when running the program from the shortcuts, but they're signed with an internal CA, so the signature isn't valid until the program is already installed (the installer installs the root CA as part of the process). The actual installer will always be unsigned though.


The miners themselves aren't signed since I'm not the one who made them (though this could change, the miners are open source so there's nothing saying I can't compile and sign them myself)...

It costs a minimum of $70 per year to sign the installers. That's more than HelioMine has even earned us so far. If we did that we would be losing even more money instead of earning like this is supposed to do.

EDIT: Loaded the next page and saw this had already been answered twice.

Right click the tray icon and check the suppress popup messages option in the settings.
