I got a notice that I had to update my DivX Player 1.x so I downloaded the mentioned software and installed it. Still after two days I get the same message I have to upgrade because of a DLL in Firefox ?

U have not given many clues to the problem.

Are U using Firefox 3?

Have U installed this update that supports Firefox?

I note U have just updated from Firefox Beta 3.1 to a final addition of 3.0.9.

Dix Web Player is also in Beta form.

As U are aware beta versions can be buggy & this sort of thing can happen.

I would try a complete uninstall of both programmes.

Uninstall each one via add/remove
Reboot
Reinstall both from this site

I have exactly the same problem as Eljo with the slight variation that the DLL is installed in c/windows/system32/C2MP/NPDIVX32.dll.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled DIVX with my internet security enabled and again with the security teporarily paused but the vulnerability persists.

I was reluctant to uninstall the latest version of Firefox 3 in case I lost all my add-ons and plug-ins with their relevant settings but I wonder if I have any choice or whether Elmo succeeded in resolving his problem.

Robomech1 seems to have resolved his problem with the plugin npdivx32.dll

Perhaps this link will throw some light on the issue for U both.

I uninstalled all DIVX program's in add/remove. Than There was still (under Vista) in the Start\program's a DivX software bit that needed to be uninstalled by admin rights. After that there was no DivX software left, still after clicking in Secunia the problem was not gone. I clicked on the button "open map"and it opened a map in Firefox with still 3 DivX related files, I renamed the extensions of these 3 files and than Secunia called victory!

I did not dare to install DivX again...

Pleased to hear U have cleared the error and are secure.

I do not use DivX but was very impressed by their website. Provided Firefox behaves itself over the next few days I would be tempted to delete the 3 renamed files - reboot & reinstall Divx.

At best U will get a nice player back fully secure & at worse U will know which programme is causing the grief.

I suspect something went wrong on the update of Firefox.

I am having the same problem with the DivX Web Player 1x DLL and Firefox. No matter how many times I downloaded the update recommended, it still finds a problem. Finally, I uninstalled all the DivX program parts until there was no mention of DivX on the program list. Rebooted the machine and updated Secunia as suggested. Ran a rescan, and there it is again: "DivX Web Player 1.x" threat rating of 4. Am beginning to wonder if it is not a glitch in the Secunia scan, and not DivX? Any other suggestions as to how to get rid of this problem?

Thank you Maurice. The installation path is: c:\\Program Files\DivX\Web Player\npdivx32.dll

Apparently, not all of the DivX programs were uninstalled by Microsoft uninstaller. There are still some files left. Computer Hope.com says that file is a Firefox plugin, and is safe. Why does Secunia recognize it as a threat? Should I delete the file, or will that make a mess for other programs?

Thanks for your help.

I would just delete it. If U prefer U can rename it

c:\\Program Files\DivX\Web Player\npdivx32.dll_OLD

By using that method U can always delete at a later date when U are sure everything is OK without this file.

FWIW : I have DivX Web Player 1.5.0.2. showing twice under "patched" - and so up to date - as the npdivx32.dll file ; once in the ..\Programme Files\DivX\DivX Web Player\.. folder and the second in the ..Programme Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\.. folder .

Under the "patched threat" column they show as category 4 threat : ie : the unpatched/out of date threat as in SA33196 of 15/04/2009 .

They do not show in the "insecure" Tab.

Anthony
