I am trying to download file from Internet Explorer 8 and I am using the following URL

http://servername:8080/apps/controller?getfile=test.xls

I am getting Security Warning window when I click URL, what could be the reason for this and how can I resolve this issue? In Chrome this works fine.

Any help is highly appreciable

Are you asking why IE is behaving the way it does? –  Dave Rook Oct 28 '13 at 10:14
    
@DaveRook Yes and are there any ways it could be worked around? –  Polppan Oct 28 '13 at 10:20
