Hi there,
I've installed the "fix it" referred to by the SA54884. I've also installed and configured EMET4.
But, PSI still wants me to update.
I've done a "recheck" (free translation, got german lang) but still states need to perform a manual update.
What's the Update / Patch PSI is looking for?

Kind regards

thanks for pointing this out, it does make sense ;)
though it's everything a normal user can do...
so let's ignore the warning and wait for "the fix"

Hi ,

Unless the "FIXIT" changes the metadata thePSI/ Secunia are using to identify the software then the PSI will not be able to identify whether you have applied the "workaround" or not .

As far as I understand (non-techie) , the PSI tracks patches and programme security updates but , almost never , a workaround as it cannot tell if you have used it (or not) :eg: disabled a particular function .

In this case , the "FIXIT" would need to change the .dll version N # for the PSI to display your move .

The security warning from the PSI may have arisen to the lack of clarity and may be an FP of sorts .

Hope that helps .

Anthony
