There is a new release of VLC but Secunia PSI (version 2.0) is not reporting that I didn't install it. How come?

If it does not appear after a full rescan suggest it to Secunia:

SUGGESTING A NEW PROGRAMME TO SECUNIA

Secunia do not accept programmes versions in ALPHA(Includes Google Canary/Dev & Mozilla Aurora) or BETA.

PSI Version 3
1. Open PSI>show programmes - U should see all your programmes listed by an icon or list presentation.
2. Click Add Program (top right of page)
3. Fill out the details requested & click Send Data.

PSI Version 2

1. From the DASHBOARD page click on RESULTS.
2. On the RESULTS page look above the tab INSTALL SOLUTION & U will see a green icon & ARE YOU MISSING A PROGRAM?
3. Click it. Fill out the details requested.
4. Click SUGGEST SOFTWARE.

PSI Version 1

1. Open the PATCHED or SECURE BROWSING tab.
2. Scroll to the bottom where U will see a link in blue ink "Program Missing? Suggest It Here!"
3. Click the link & then fill out the details in the boxes that appear(the important bit is the FILE SELECTION).
4. Click Suggest Program.

If requested,Secunia respond by email that the programme has been added to their database. A full PSI scan should reveal it.

Hi ,

There are no Secunia Advisory alerts for VLC version 2.1.1 and after a (very) quick check it "looks" as if version 2.1.2 is a bug/eye candy fix and NOT a "security" fix .

If this is correct , the PSI will not advise you to update from 2.1.1.

Secunia may not yet have 2.1.2 in it's data base , you will need to install it and then run a full scan to check this . If it is not displayed , you will need to suggest it using the method explained by Maurice (above).

Hope that is clear enuff'.

Anthony

Anthony,
I wasn't aware that Secunia distinguished between 'eye candy' & 'security', so thanks for the heads up.
