Recently I noticed that PSI was upgraded from to PSI Since I was patching like crazy this week anyways, I decided to download 4002 and give it a try, even tho I don't need the CSI integration.

All appeared to be going swimmingly... until I checked the "Secure Browsing" page.

I have two browsers installed, IE 8 and Firefox 3.6.23. On the "Secure Browsing" page in PSI 3003, it showed IE as loading 10 or 12 plugins and FF loading 6 or 8. I forget the exact numbers, but it's not important. What *is* important is that the "Secure Browsing" page in PSI 4002 now shows IE and FF as each loading *only 2* plugins. Furthermore, the *only* plugin listed for either browser is Windows Media Player 11, even tho the "Scan Results" page in PSI 4002 still lists all the other plugins that are installed.

In other words, the "Scan Results" page in PSI 4002 appears to be the same as in PSI 3003, BUT the "Secure Browsing" page in PSI 4002 is VERY DIFFERENT than in PSI 3003.

I tried various combinations of: rebooting, restarting PSI 4002, disabling/re-enabling the "Secure Browsing" page, and rescanning my disk. No Joy.

So it appears that the "Secure Browsing" page may be broken in PSI

P.S. In case it matters... Win XP Pro SP3.

P.P.S. While the PSI 4002 interface is loading, the word "undefined" appears briefly after "Loading interface" and before "Fetching Data". Don't remember seeing that in PSI 3003.

I have reported numerous problems with the download page including your observation.

Secunia are investigating.

Revert to V & all will be in order.

Thanks. Knew that was going to be the answer; however, I thought I ought to report my observations here first in case these issues hadn't (yet) been seen by anyone else.

Maurice: Did look at the forum briefly before installing 4002. Missed your original posting, since it was in a thread that I didn't read because it didn't seem relevant. Thanks for posting it in this thread as well. Hopefully, it will now get more visibility, both within Secunia, and by plain vanilla users like me.

Done, and indeed everything is back as it was. (That's why whenever I do an upgrade, I always try to keep a copy of the installer for the previous version handy "just in case". ;)

FWIW, after uninstalling 4002 and reinstalling 3003, *all* the missing plugins magically reappeared on the "Secure Browsing" page, without my having to do anything. So those data must have been there in the scan results all along, but 4002 just couldn't see them.

Definitely looks like a bug to me!
