I have a PSI alert this morning for MS14-002: Vulnerability in Windows kernel could allow elevation of privilege: January 14, 2014. Secunia detail is: Microsoft Windows LRPC Client Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. Windows update doesn't find it. Leave it dangle in Secunia, or some other approach?

Since installing the patch have you rebooted & completed a full PSI rescan?

I don't think I've installed the patch, per my post?...but will reboot all now & scan again. Perhaps it's installed indeed.

A manual re-scan did solve that. Apparently windows update did its thing last week when the update came out. I rebooted the system & re-ran PSI scan & that update disappeared. It's not clear to me why PSI did not automatically recognize that...doesn't it usually?

Now that XP is no longer supported by MS, I have a PC that can not be upgraded. Is there a way for Secunia to ignore the XP End Of Life so that there is no false positive for the scan results?
