Secunia frontpage download solution

Security Update for Microsoft Office XP (KB953405)

The update has already been applied or included in an update that has already been applied.

Is this warning erroneous or is there a deficiency with the update installation which shows successfully applied in the windows update history?

I treat the solution tool as a suggestion rather than a cure.

More important is what the path is to the insecurity that PSI has found.

It is then a matter of trawling MS to find the file. If U want help searching what is the path?

the other element that throws me is that I went thru the same process with Access and then after taking no action at my end the program showed patched and was removed from the insecure list. Thus, I presumed that secunia updated the program to eliminate a false positive.



By the way when confronting security issues I have found a lot of time consumed dealing with false positives.

Ran into same type of problem on non MS progs. After much time spent digging, I would find a leftover .DLL file or such. The only way I know to find these is to check any suspect files' "properties", looking for an old created on date.

Please be careful deleating files!

Kind of interesting as I thought maybe something might hit with the updates. Well Access went on the insecure list and within the week back off again.

Hunting for a dll and replacing it might make some sense if I knew definitely what dll was being labeled as insecure and this insecurity appeared to be valid.

Over the weekend I wasted a bunch of time messing with a top level warning from another security program. Highly dangerous trojan that could take control of my computer........within 24 hours oooooooooops the site was overwhelmed and no updates were coming out.........add another 12 hours and a new update and the trojan was no longer a trojan......in reality it never was.

Thus I wonder.
