Rescannin with Secunia doesn´t help. It says Update.

PSI does not track BETA versions of programmes so it has found remnants of an older version.

What path is PSI showing to the file that requires updating?

FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI

VERSION 2


From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER

VERSION 2


1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable file.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe, version: 2.2.33.63

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.

VERSION 3

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.

U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.

Right click on the icon that represents the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.

Double click on C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe, version: 2.2.33.63

That will open Windows Explorer & U will see that file. Right click on it & select delete.

Run a full PSI scan & the problem should be resolved.


Please Note:

1. After a full rescan this programme should not be present on the PSI scan results page if you have a BETA version installed.

You should expect the unexpected when dealing with BETA versions.

If what you state is correct you should contact Steam with a bug report. They are leaving your system vulnerable with their BETA version which clearly is still using bits of an old version to function.

Secunia will not update their database to accommodate BETA versions.

If you really are BETA testing then the vendor should have given you clear instructions on how to deploy it, any known bugs still being worked on & has an open channel to report issues.

Responsible vendors will also indicate that BETA should not be deployed on a main working platform & caveat that they are not responsible for any mishaps if Windows fails.

I will unsubscribe. This really has nothing to do with Secunia or PSI until that programme is declared RTM.
