[R-SIG-Finance] quantmod getSymbols() failing on Yahoo

I've been using getSymbols() to retrieve data from Yahoo for some time
without difficulty.  Recently, I've been getting this error:

Error in download.file(paste(yahoo.URL, "s=", Symbols.name, "&a=", from.m,
  cannot open URL '

Pasting this url into my browser works as expected:


Can someone suggest how I might find/edit the line in the quantmod code
that would enable me to to switch to HTTPS until the package catches up?

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance.
