Using Secunia vesion 22.214.171.1243 and had alert that Python 2.7.2150.1013 is not secure, found in CyberLink PhotoDirector 3
C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberlink\PhotoDirector 3\Koan\python27.dll
C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberlink\PhotoDirector 3\Customizations\Generic\Setting\python27.dll
So Secunia then prompts me to click to update and when I do, it is the Python site which allows me to download the newer version, but a version slightly higher than the one suggested by Secunia. Must be okay, I reckon, so I download it, but there is no updated python27.dll for me to substitute for the non-secure version, and I gather from reading Secunia closed community discussion threads that I could not just substitute it anyway, if the experts were correct. Rescanning still tells me I'm not secure. I had upgraded from PhotoDirector 2.11 to version 3, and now what? There do not seem to be updated components, other than to buy the latest iteration. Apparently, I cannot "click to update."
Thanks for your kind attention,

|Secunia have to amend their rules to ignore these embedded Python runtimes. If this is a new version of Photo Director, they may not have seen it yet. If they do not respond to your post tomorrow, email Support.

Thank you for the information you have posted. If you perform a rescan with the PSI the issue should now have been fixed.
