Secure Browsing of PSI v. 2.0.0.3001 is no longer detecting the NPAPI (non-IE) version of Adobe Flash v. 11.4.402.278 and is incorrectly reporting that my Firefox v. 15.0.1 browser is fully secure. I checked my Firefox add-on manager (Tools | Add-ons) and confirmed that my Flash plugin is enabled, and.FLV videos play normally in Firefox.

Secure Browsing correctly detects the IE-compatible Active-X version of Flash v. 11.4.402.278 in my IE9 browser and reports it as unpatched with no vendor solution (SA47161).

I cannot explain why the Firefox plug In is not showing on the Secure Browsing Page because I only use IE.

If you mean that Firefox is showing in the Scan Result page as secure that is correct (but misleading)in that you have done all you can to secure it.

PSI is unable to tell the difference between:

Fully patched & totally secure and fully patched by the user but is vulnerable awaiting a vendor patch.

I confirm your findings with IE. A recent check with Secunia Support confirmed that as far as they are concerned SA47161 is extant.

Hope this helps.

Version 2.0.0.4003 dropped the Adobe Flash plug-in (for non-IE browsers) from my scan results earlier this week. I completed the "suggest a program" form earlier today, but have not heard anything back yet.

Two other programs were also dropped by Secunia from my scan earlier this week, but wasn't able to determine which ones they were.

Hi, I experienced the same with Flash NPAPI an some other software lost from PSI. As like you I am unable to determine which programs were lost. The case Flash NPAPI is currently under investigation at support. They confirmed that something was wrong indeed. Just wait untill it's invetigated and corrected.

Hi Maurice:

No, I'm referring to the Secure Browsing result page, not the main Scan Result page. Both Firefox and the Adobe Flash Player are displayed as secure on the main Scan Result page that displays all 76 programs currently installed on my system (which I agree is misleading).

Secure Browsing was working correctly a few days ago and reported the Adobe Flash v. 11.4.402.278 plugin for my Firefox browser as being insecure (SA47161). I've scanned a few times today and Adobe Flash is no longer listed as a detected plugin for Firefox.

@Mynah Bird:

If you look at Maurice Joyce's post above, you'll notice that PSI v. 2.0.0.4003 only has limited Secure Browsing notifications. You might want to consider downgrading to v. 2.0.0.3003 (Maurice has provided a download link) which should do a better job of detecting your browser plugins.

@ Leendert Kip

PSI v. 3.x does not have a Secure Browsing feature (again, see Maurice's post above). If you're using PSI v. 3.0.0.4001 then I'm not sure that our problems are related.

I agree with @Imacri in that the original topic raised has become blurred.

Version 2.0.0.3001 should show the Firefox Plug In in the Secure Browsing page & it appears it does not. So where is it?

Browser Security.

I run version 2.0.0.4003 on a test PC am not aware that Adobe Flash has ever been present so am somewhat surprised to see it has gone missing. This version of PSI is useless if (full)browser disclosure is required.

Version 3 is for Beginner Class users & by default many features, including the ability to check a browser in detail, has been stripped out. On that basis I do not understand what Secunia Support are investigating regarding NPAPI & secure browsing with this version?

I can confirm that there has been programme identification issues with PSI for over a week. Attempts by Secunia Support to re-establish them has failed to date.

They include (in my case):
Winzip Professional version 16
Kindle
Messenger Plus!
Messenger Plus! for Skype
Hash Tab

The missing Firefox Plug In is not necessarily part of this issue in that the programmes I mentioned do indeed show in the Scan Results page (rather than the Secure Browsing page)but under certain conditions disappear.

Hi ,

I can confirm that the PSI version 2.0.0.3003 is correctly displaying my Mozilla Firefox 15.0.1 and it's NPAPI plug-in 11.4.402.278 as "patched" and "up to date" on the "Scan Results" page .

"Secure Browsing" correctly displays Firefox as "insecure for browsing" due to the extant SA47161 . The same goes for the Chrome 22.x display (actually caused by Chrome Frame as discussed on another thread) and that of IE8 (with the bonus of the extant SA24314 for the Browser itself) .

A longstanding "bug" previously acknowledged by SEcunia Support but still/also extant is a double display of the browser programme itself within the Browser display for Ff and Chrome .

It would seem that the PSI 2.0.0.3003 is still the most reliable version for my XP SP3 system .

Hope that is clear/helpful .

Take care

Anthony

After the useful information given by Anthony I have installed Firefox onto my XP SP3 test platform using PSI version 1.5.0.2

All looks in order so it appears PSI versions 1.5.0.2 & 2.0.0.3003 are behaving correctly.

Might be worth rechecking your end or consider an update to PSI version 2.0.0.3003. If required the link is below my Signature Block.

Hi imacri, My PSI version has no secure browsing indeed. But Flash NPAPI is missing from the list of programs in my version. I informed support and they are working on a solution.

@Maurice and others--My Adobe Flash Plug-in disappeared from my scan results earlier this week. I realize that Secure Browsing results on 2.0.0.4003 are limited. My concern isn't with Secure Browsing; it's with programs disappearing from the scan results for no apparent reason.

I'm savvy enough to check that my Flash plug-in is secure on my own, but it's disconcerting, to say the least, that programs appear in the Scan Results and then disappear.

Hello again ,

This is not the first time that programmes have gone mysteriously walkabout from the Scan Results page ; Flash seems to be a regular AWOL .

The same used to happen in the "Secure Browsing" module and at that time the "add-ons" went missing completely when they had (just) been updated ; this was seemingly rectified in 2.0.0.3003 and I currently have a pretty full set .

I would suggest you follow up on LK's email with your own to support for the "Scan Results" problem which is disconcerting . As I said above , version 2.0.0.3003 is the best bet for "Secure Browsing" .

Let's see what Monday brings . Enjoy the weekend .

Anthony

Hi Anthony:

I updated to PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 but this hasn't solved the problem. Secure Browsing still doesn't detect the NPAPI Adobe Flash plugin when I click on the "+" to expand the list of programs / plugins associated with my Firefox browser and Secure Browsing still shows Firefox as "secure for browsing". I've tested my Flash installation at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ with my Firefox browser and confirmed that Flash v. 14.4.402.278 is working correctly, so this might be an issue that's specific to my 32-bit Vista SP2 OS or my Firefox configuration.

I can also confirm that I'm still seeing the double display for firefox.exe with PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 in the list of programs / plugins associated with my Firefox browser, per my previous thread at http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/131...

Even worse, the full Scan Results of PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 only detects 71 programs, versus 76 programs for PSI v. 2.0.0.3001. I'm not sure what 5 programs I've lost (thankfully, Adobe Flash still appears in the full Scan Results), but I think I'll take your advice and just wait for a few days to see if Secunia is able to resolve these program identification issues.

@imacri

Although I don't use FF.....I have had a similar problem using psi 2.0.0.3003 for over a week now. Also using Vista OS.
I noticed that about five progs suddenly dropped out of sight from scan results.
Firstly I switched versions to 3.0.0.4001.....same progs missing tho' after a couple of scans.
As far as I'm aware, all the missing progs were patched, up to date, and in the Secunia database.....Revounstaller 1.94 being one such.
I then notified Support.... who are aware of the issue.....I was informed that they had found an issue which they were working hard to resolve.
I've since moved back to 2.0.0.3003.....but still no change as yet.

Regards.......
.

Hi ,

Just ran (yet) another scan and NPAPI Flash has now gone AWOL from "Scan Results" with at least two other programmes - no idea which ones - so "Secure Browsing" now shows Ff and Chrome Browsers as "secure" .

Hey Ho , gotta go :))

@mogs:

I confirmed that one of my missing programs in the v. 2.0.0.3003 full Scan Results is Revo Uninstaller v. 1.94. I tried using the "Suggest a Program" submission form but when I browse to the executable at C:\Program Files\VS Revo Group\Revo Uninstaller\Revouninstaller.exe the program path is entered in the form as C:\fakepath\Revouninstaller.exe and I get the following error message:

Unable to access the file. The Secunia PSI cannot access the file you specified. Please add the site 'https://psi.secunia.com' to the list of trusted sites in Internet Explorer and try again. If the problem persists contact Secunia Support (support@secunia.com).

I'm going fiddle with the trusted sites in my Norton Internet Security and browsers and see if I can get some of my missing programs back.

@AnthonyWells

Thanks for the update. So much for my idea that this could be a problem exclusive to Win Vista.

P.S. - I sent an e-mail to Secunia Support and referenced the URL to this thread.

I don't have that problem......the file is accessible for Suggestion......in fact Support did say, at first, that they were detecting correctly.......it seems to be a matter of the psi not receiving some of the scan results when it should be retrieving them.
I can't confirm much as far as Secure Browsing is concerned......IE is showing okay.....Chrome Dev is not monitored by psi anyrate.

@Anthony

Sorry, I have to correct the above statement. The full Scan Results of PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 currently detects my ActiveX (IE-compatible) version of Adobe Flash, but not the NPAPI (non-IE compatible) Adobe Flash plugin. I forgot they should be listed separately in the Scan Results.

We are currently in the process of examining an issue with the PSI which may also be causing the behaviour described in this thread. I have no further information at this point but I will make sure to update this thread as soon as the issue is fixed or there is any useful information.

Hi all,

Just did a full scan before making this post.
Previous results showed both Flash Player Activex & NPAPI-after
scan NPAPI & 4 other programs went AWOL-
both in Patched & Secure Prowsing
tabs. This is using v 1.5.0.2 of PSI. Patiently twiddling
thumbs awaiting 'fix' from Secunia. All other Firefox
plugins correctly detected & displayed in
Secure Browsing-but neither IE 8 or Firefox 10.7.0 ESR
shown as Secure because of FP Activex which was
as before scan.

Hey Anthony,

but no go, better news it was your post. Ha, cataracts
in same situation as you, knife getting closer but
not yet as of last exam approximately 1 month ago, everything else seems to be OK. Hope all is well with you.
Thanks for asking-now back to some serious
thumb twiddling.

Hello again ,

I have just updated Flash to 11.4.402.287 (ActiveX and NPAPI) and AIR to 3.4.0.2700 and then run a full scan (no reboot) . All three are correctly displayed in 2.0.0.3003's "Scan Results" and Secure Browsing" with SA47161 extant in my three browsers (= not secure for browsing) .

At the same time 3 or more programmes or their "duplicate" entries have gone AWOL from "Scan Results" - no idea which they are .

Take care

Anthony

Hi

I'm with you on same procedure Anthony except I did download & install 'Patch Tuesday' updates &
I did reboot but with the same results. v 1.5.0.2 picked up
'new' FP both ActiveX & NPAPI in Patched & Secure
Browsing tabs=both Ff & IE not secure for browsing
because ActiveX populates in both browsers-go figure.

Back to serious thumb twiddling-hope all is well.

Well, this is getting stranger and stranger.

I updated to Adobe Flash v. 11.4.402.287 yesterday and scanned with PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 and it had no effect. The NPAPI (non-IE) version of Flash for Firefox was still missing from the main Scan Results and Secure Browsing.

I installed my Windows Patch Tuesday updates and upgraded Firefox from v. 15.0.1 to v. 16.0 today. The NPAPI version of Flash v. 11.4.402.287 has reappeared in the PSI main Scan Results. However, Firefox v. 16.0 has now disappeared from the main Scan Results and Secure Browsing.

I'll have wait and see if the new Firefox v. 16.0 and other programs like Revo Uninstaller Free v. 1.94 reappear in my main Scan Results before marking this thread a s solved.

From an email I have received from Secunia Support the problem of solving the issue with missing programmes is ongoing.

To my knowledge there are 8 programmes that have "gone walkies".

It is not confined to any one vendor. For example, Revo Pro shows but the freebie does not. Likewise Corel - Winzip Courier Pro shows but not WinZip Pro V16.

Hi ,

Still confusing . I have updated Firefox to 16.0.0.4661 (using Ff's internal updater) and installed the M$ patches and rebooted , as requested by M$ ; a full PSI scan correctly displays Flash , AIR and Windows XP but Firefox "incorrectly" displays as version 15.0.1.4631in the "Scan Results" and "Secure Browsing" modules.

I will make a Ff programme suggestion to support now .

EDIT:
Latest "individual programme rescan" correctly displays Ff version 16.0.0.4661

Yep still confusing.

Updated Firefox via internal updater from 10.0.7ESR
to v 10.0.8. Did full rescan lost FP ActiveX & NPAPI plugin in Patched
& Secure Browsing-which means both my browsers
are now Safe for Browsing-haha-gained 3 programs
in Patched tab-1 I've never heard of MSCOMCT2 ActiveX Control6.x.

At least I now have a total net gain of 1 in Patched tab.

Oh well, back to thumb twiddling.

I think you should know OGSO that 10.0.7/10.0.8 ESR was due to make the leap into hyperspace and join platform 17.0 ; see here (scroll down) :-

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations...

Atm there seem to be some teething troubles with platform 16.0 so your space travel seems to be put on hold - maybe due to added gravitation (weight) caused by sedentary thumb twiddling .

Everything tickety-boo with my PSI 2.0.0.3003 and only 5 programmes/duplicates unaccounted for .

EDIT:does this help ?? :-

Hey Anthony,
As a matter of fact had 'Googled' & wound up at that
website & was just finishing reading when notification
of email update came in.
As it seems to be needed for Windoze to properly function I won't uninstall-wonder why it was never
detected before now-I haven't installed any new
programs in several months. Oh well-as Maurice says
CyberScience at its best-or something like that.

Secunia have confirmed by email that the "missing programmes" issue has been fixed.

I have tested it against PSI versions 1.5.0.2 - 2.0.0.3003 - 2.0.0.4003 & 3.0.0.4001 & can confirm that is the case including the display of Flash.

A full PSI rescan is required to achieve the results.

Hi ,

Can confirm that and have got at least 7 programmes back (including REVO free 1.9.2.0)

Anyone using Firfox 16.0 should know that "secure browsing" (PSI 2.0.0.3003) shows a low(ish) level unpatched vulnerability as per SA50932 :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/50932/

version 15.x suffers from a more crtical unpatched vulnerability in SA50856 :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/50856/

Stick or twist ???

Take care

Anthony

@Anthony

I have also got all progs showing bar one....subsequently reported findings to Support....Privazer 1.2.25 not showing up.

I noticed you mentioned Revo 1.92.....I'm showing 1.94

I was wondering whether you'd seen anything of the following :-

Mozilla pulls Firefox 16 due to security vulnerabilities

A fix is coming soon
By Lawrence Latif
http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2216419/m...
SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Mozilla has pulled Firefox 16 just hours after releasing it, citing security vulnerabilities.
Mozilla's Firefox 16 web browser got its regular six-weekly update yesterday but the organisation decided to pull the browser hours after the release. The outfit claimed it became aware of a security vulnerability in Firefox 16 and that updates are expected to ship at some point today.

Hi Mogs ,

Did not see that actual report in the inquirer but they all say much the same . The weird thing is a Mozilla guy urging people to go back to 15.0.1 when there is/are more (as in highly) critical vulnerabiliti(es) therein and then someone else says you can sit and wait for the fix , for the not yet knowingly exploited vulnerability , in 16 ; probably uot today .

Chacun son tour .

Have not used Revo for a long time , will update when next I do .

Take care

Anthony

@Anthony....just thought to bring the FF info to your attention.....tho' obviously mindful of the fact that you'd likely already be well aware !!

The Revo....from what I can remember.....didn't change version numbers at the last update a couple of weeks ago.....minimal changes anyrate it seems :: to 1.94 from 1.94 !!

Tho' extremely pleasant...it's your occasional use of French phraseology which I'm having difficulty with !! I can translate a whole section/page but an isolated sentence I havn't fathomed the method for !! I know I really should be more aux fait but the sensibility seems to elude me !!

Best wishes...........

Mogs ,

It is probably closest to "each his turn" or "everyone can have his say" . As tour also means tower , I was thinking an English play on words of they (alone) in their (ivory) tower(s) . I guess you had to be there :))))

Now you are "au fait" , au revoir !!

Prends soin or should that be prenez garde ?? "Google" search is helpful .

Anthony

Certainly some towers would be darker or lighter to any Childe Roland or Rolande ?! Luckily, my memory seems to serve me better than an elephant with all it's teeth !!
It is a pleasant thing.....I'm sure attention to one's "lettres" profits the Soul more than any sword fencing !!
You must be able to recommend a "phrase site" I could consult with sometimes ?

Mogs ,

If you blue highlight and right click a "phrase" when using Chrome you should see the option to search Googlke :eg:the first thing in the list I see for "prends soin" is :-

http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=28...

and "prenez garde" gives (me) :-

http://en.bab.la/dictionary/french-english/prenez-...

There are so many sites it is rather pot luck until you find one you like and can bookmark .

It is also a suick way to check your spelling/grammar ; au fait = up to date and (conforme) aux faits = accurate .

Hope that is helpful . Probably time for Imacri to close this thread as the "original" problem seems resolved .

Take care

Anthony

Thanks for the links/info etcetera.....very helpful....and yes, the blue highlighting...really handy.

Had a reply from Support regarding PriVazer.....It appears the issue may still be related but hopefully will be quickly resoved.

Hi Emil:

Is Secunia relatively confident that they've solved the majority of problems mentioned in this thread? If so, I'd like to mark it as solved.

I scanned with PSI v. 2.0.0.3003 today and noticed a few minor glitches in Secure Browsing (latest Firefox v. 16.0.1.4666 still flagged as unpatched with no vendor solution for SA50932; duplicate listing for Mozilla Firefox 16.x when I click on the "+" to expand the list of programs / plugins associated with my Firefox browser per known bug discussed at http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/131...) but everything else looks much better.

Yes, the issue we have experienced has now been solved. It is possible however that we need to update a few detection rules for some of the affected programs. So if you come across any program that is not detected, then please send us a software suggestion.

Thank you all for your patience with this issue. Based on this experience we have improved our internal system so that we should not see this issue again.

Regarding the Secure Browsing page in PSI 2.x we are currently awaiting the patch for Mozilla Firefox 16.x and will update our version rules as soon as possible.
The duplicate detection of Firefox in Secure Browsing in PSI 2.x has been fixed in the latest version of PSI 2.x.
