Hi -
I have repeatedly installed both Firefox 9.0.1 and 3.6.25, but Secunia keeps telling me that I have to upgrade from 3.6.24.

Any suggestions?

Doug

@Doug8765

Hello.
Are the two recent FF installs detected/shown by psi in your Scan Results ? Did you reboot after installing them....before re-scanning ?

The path clearly shows it is located in a back up folder.


DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

To delete a vulnerable file or folder found by PSI try this:

1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable files or folders.
C:\Windows\ERDNT\cache86\firefox.exe, version: 3.6.24

6. Right click on it & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.

Hi Maurice -
Thank you. Thank you. Yes, that fixed the problem.

Sorry it took me a couple days to reply, but I forgot how I got to this forum.

Now I'm going to look at my other computer since it has the same problem, but for an even older version of FF (version 2.x).

Many thanks.

Happy New Year!

Doug
