Better error msg: GPGServices shows misleading verify results if encrypted and signed files are verified

Reported by steve | February 19th, 2014 @ 12:25 PM


  • encrypt + sign a file
  • right click encrypted file and select Services > OpenPGP: Verify signature of file

Verification FAILED. No signatures found. That is a little misleading. (screenshot attached)

Not sure about the best solution. We could try to decrypt the file first in such case (but need to make sure user understands what happens, because if they click "verify" and end up with encrypted files, that could be misleading as well and a potential security problem).

Else we could at least show some more info, e.g. that the file first needs to be decrypted to do the verification. decrypt now? after decryption proceed with verification.
