I have Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. After a scan, PSI said a program came up as insecure. This is a program (Node.js .x) I never installed or even knew I had. PSI says old version is; 0.8.2.0 and new is; 0.8.26. The path is: C:\Program Files (x86)\ATT\8.2.1.6\ma\bin\node.exe,version 0.8.2.0. When I click to install solution,I am re-directed to a web site (http://blog.nodejs.org/2013/10/18/node-v0-8-26-mai...) that shows 3 possible installations.

Windows Installer: http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.8.26/node-v0.8.26-x86.ms...

Windows x64 Installer: http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.8.26/x64/node-v0.8.26-x6...

Windows x64 Files: http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.8.26/x64/

Does anyone know which one is the correct one??
Thank You,
Dave

@DeafDave

There's more information here....http://nodejs.org/
Taken from the Secunia Advisory http://secunia.com/advisories/product/40852/?task=... but it shows a current version of 0.10.21

At first sight it would seem that unless you are a developer you wouldn't need it.....hopefully someone else on the forum will be able to offer more assistance in determining the best course of action............regards........mogs......

Yes. I saw this on their webpage under Node v0.8.26 (Maintenance), (This release contains a security fix for the http server implementation) but still not sure whether to ignore it or not.

@DeafDave

Anything on the following page strike a chord....some place you might have picked it up ?
https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ATT&{google:acceptedSu ggestion}oq=ATT&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

You could try just deleting it to the Recycle bin.....keep it there for a couple of days unless you notice something untoward....in which case re-instate it......just a suggestion.

Regards......mogs.......

MOGS,
Nothing on the following page(s) strike a chord. So, I will do as you have suggested, send to the recycle bin.
Thank you,
Dave
