Hello all,

After today's PSI scan I saw something unusual under Secure Browsing.
There are the (usual) 3 browsers installed on my computer;
Internet Explorer 8.x
Mozilla Firefox 8.x
Opera 11.x
And since today alongside the 3 browsers: Adobe Flash Player 11.x.
Note: I do not mean Adobe Flash shows up under the browsers, but looks like a 4th “browser” alongside the 3 real browsers under Secure Browsing.

Question: does anybody else see this unusual appearance of Adobe Flash Player under Secure Browsing?

Secunia PSI 2.0.0.3003
Only Flash plug-in installed, no Flash ActiveX installed

Windows XP home SP3,
Windows Vista home Premium SP2.


Websafe.

Yes. I've got the same. Presumably a glitch in the rules unless Secunia are trying to tell us something.

Hello ddmarshall,

Thanks for your reply. It seems it is not just me.
Likely Secunia will correct the database rules.

Have nice day,

Websafe.

Has anyone the idea what actually is the current status regarding flash player 11.1.102.55?
Scan results claim "all was fine".
Secure browsing claims "vulnerable".
One of them two must be false.

A normally reliable security researcher has reported some vulnerabilities in Flash Player. Adobe has not yet acknowledged their existence.

In the scan results, only vulnerabilities that have patches available are reported.
The secure browsing feature lists unpatched vulnerabilities as well. This is an aid to deciding which browser to use. In this case, all browsers are deemed to be affected so the only steps you can take is to be careful which website you visit and hope your antivirus will block anything you come across.

This might help:

Hi ,

Regarding Secure Browsing display , on my system , the PSI 2.0.x detects my "stable" 15.x version of Google Chrome Frame , but NOT my Dev version of Chrome Browser . The Adobe Flash Player 11.x "browser" mimics the Chrome Frame display (and I would guess the stable 15.x browser display) , but replaces the Google Chrome 15.x entry with Adobe Flash Player 11.x .



None of the other browser presentations (Mozilla Firefox 8.0, IE 8 or Chrome 15.x ("Frame" in my case) are displaying AFL as "unpatched no vendor solution" and SA471461 as reference :-

Complicated !!
