Edit: The free 14 day trial is still available and the download link has not changed (so far). However, the manual link for downloading the signatures results in Error: The page you requested is currently not available. We are sorry for the inconvenience!

Although the file download page still is unavailable, I found these two direct download links for those who want to manually download the signature database files.
