Hello All,

I am experiencing an issue with the Secunia PSI 2.0 and the vSphere Client. Secunia is marking vSphere Client version 4.1.0.32733 as Insecure (which I know). I install the updated version of the vSphere Client 5.x and Secunia marks it the 5.x binary as patched. It doesn't mark the existing 4.1.0.32733 client as insecure or even report on it being installed in the Secunia PSI. Is this a known issue? Why dosen't Secunia Report on the out of date vSphere Client? It seems like its only looking for the latest version and marking it as patched while there are still vulnerable vSphere client version installed on the host.

Any Help is Greatly Appreciated. Thank You

VMWare Sphere Client seems to be detected/reported on an "either/or" basis....as can be seen in the Secunia Advisory here :-http://secunia.com/advisories/48387/

The vulnerability is reported in version 5 and versions prior to 4.1 Update 1.

Solution:
Update to version 4.1 Update 2 or 5.0 Update 1.

Both products are reported as secure when fully patched, as can be seen here :-

Most Critical Unpatched
There are no unpatched Secunia advisories affecting this product, when all vendor patches are applied..

and here :-

Hope it helps......regards......mogs
