Hi ,

As can be seen here , there are two extant SA's for this software (scroll down) :-

Version 2.1.0 of the VLC Player seems to be a "major" upgrade and is claimed to fix a welter of bugs :-

It will be interesting to see whether Secunia and VidoeLAN are able to agree (almost for the first time) as to the "security" of this latest version . It might take Secunia a day or two to digest whether 2.1.0 is a "security" patch/fix and as to which SA's it refers ; so don't hold your breath for instant gratification .

EDIT: Should have said :-

The/my PSI detects version 2.1.0 correctly in the "Scan Results" module but shows the VLC plug-in as "insecure , no solution" in the "Secure Browsing" module in IE8 , Firefox and Chrome . Breathe :))

Take care



It always seems impossible until its done.
