[SOLVED] Cannot Download VirtualBox Software

I have VirtualBox 5.2.20 installed on Windows 10 and I want to install Guest Additions. However, I cannot download Guest Additions or the latest 6.0 version of VirtualBox. I get An Unauthorized Request error message from this link.

https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.6/VirtualBox-6.0.6-130049-Win.exe

I've rebooted. Enabled/disabled my VPN. Still doesn't work.

And this link when I try to download the VB Windows Installer it just sits there trying to load until it times out.

https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/virtualbox/downloads/index.html

Is this a problem with Oracle or my own PC?

It appears to be an issue with the Oracle VB site and its certificates. Trying to upgrade my VB install from 5.2.8 to 5.2.28 returns a BitDefender error, stating:
"The certificate used to encrypt your connection to this website does not match the domain it was issued for. Attackers might try to steal sensitive information from you, such as passwords or credit cards. "

Click on 'do it anyway' returns "An unauthorized request."

It's them, not you.

Hello, as said by @USAFRet, they're having SSL issues (it is currently pointing to oracle.com instead of virtualbox.org).

You can still download from there just editing the URL: either use HTTP in place of HTTPS or replace "virtualbox.org" with "oracle.com"
