UPDATING MSXML 4.0

MSXML4 was shipped as an independent, downloadable SDK targeted at Independent Software Vendors and third parties. It is an upgrade for but not a replacement to MSXML3 as version 3 still provides legacy features. Versions 6,4 and 3 may be run concurrently.

MSXML 4.0 SP3 is the most recent version released in March 2009. SP2 support expired in April 2010.

The download link (clearly marked MSXML.MSI - 2.0 MB) is here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx...

Please note this SP was released before Windows 7 was produced therefore there is no mention of compatibility - it works flawlessly with Windows 7 on both 32 & 64 Bit systems

Now run Windows Update - there are some additional patches for SP3.

Once installed run a full PSI scan & PSI will pick it up as secure with version 4.30.2114.0

Update 1 20:23 22/08/2012

So why has it taken so long for Secunia to pick this up and why does this not show up when running Microsoft update? I'm leery to install without more information.

the problem is still not solved why does microsoft have so many problems they are supposed to be the security for our computers to protects us, Service pack 4.0 is still not installed, & secunia is still saying their is a unsecure patch. The information listed on secunia where it shows you the unsecure patch is not the right download to install it does not work. I have vista windows I tried downloading the correct one, with no luck, pleas advise

Hi Maurice:

Thanks for the link to the MS XML 4.0 SP3 download. PSI detected the old (unsupported) SP2 v. 4.20.9876.0 yesterday so I ran the msxml.msi installer you recommended on my 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 machine. Windows Update then installed the KB2721691 patch (published July 2012) to bring MS XML 4.0 up to v. 4.30.2114.0. A re-scan with Secunia PSI v. 2.0.0.3001 shows that my system is 100% secure again.

And kudos to altonius and other users in the forum who brought this issue to the attention of Secunia.

@Jan406

As U can see from the post above another member has easily fixed the MSXML issue.

Have U now completed the task?
