If I have upgraded to the referenced version of Chrome, 7.0.517.44, then why does it still show up as a threat?

Below is a copy of an extract from the advisory :-
) An unspecified error exists related to type confusions with event objects.

10) An unspecified error in the SVG handling can be exploited to trigger an out-of-bounds array access.

Update to version 7.0.517.44.

Provided and/or discovered by
The vendor credits:
1) David Bloom, Google Security Team, Google Chrome Security Team (Inferno), and Google Chrome Security Team (Cris Neckar).
2, 10) wushi, team509
3) kuzzcc

The advisory is therefore relative to prior versions of Stable Chrome.
If you have an insecurity/vulnerability being reported by psi...tho' you have 7.0.517.44 installed.....it's probable that you havn't deleted the previous version which is not automatically removed. psi will continue to detect older/prior versions even if they are in the Recycle bin.
This section of the forum is reserved for staff discussion specifically related to the advisory......please use other sections in the future.....thankyou.
Hope this helps...regards,
