Secunia PSI prompts me to update something called Apache HTTP Server 2.2.X and PHP 5.3.X. Wouldn't like to do this, since I have no idea of what these programs are, and why I have them installed on my computer. Is this some sort of malware? Any reason why I couldn't unistall them? Can anyone help with this?

This is the background to these programmes:

Apache HTTP Server 2.2.X

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/

PHP 5.3.X

http://www.php.net/manual/en/history.php.php

Do the programmes show in Control Panel>add/remove (Program & Features)?

Thank you for the answer. As to whether they show up in the Control Panel, the answer is no. But I realized I can see the source by clicking "show details" in Secunia PSI, Seems like the programs came with the GFI Backup 2011 Agent I installed earlier today, where they belong to the "GFI Backup Administration Console". I wonder if it is a good idea to try to update these components?

If they are embedded into a secure programme it is possible that it is a false positive.

My advice is to contact support at: support@secunia.com & explain the situation plus refer to this thread.

They will investigate & if necessary adjust their database.

Hope this helps.
