Hi all,

I was using Mozilla 3.6.2, and I had 3 instances of this program showing as insecure, with the solution being to upgrade to 3.6.3 which I did this morning.

The instance in program files (x86) was corrected once I upgraded, and it went away.

However there are two other instances of this program being out of date, they are located in:

C:\Users\All Users\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
C:\ProgramData\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

I tried to run a custom install and directed the install to these directories, however I get a message saying:

"You don't have access to write to the installation directory.

Click OK to select a different directory."

I realize now that I should reboot my computer before raising alarm, but since I have already written this much I will go ahead and post and give an update. Thank you all for your help. It is appreciated.

**EDIT: Reboot did not solve this vulnerability. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Sam

Hello Sam ,

I use XP , but I am told that the C:\ProgramData\.. folder is a hidden system folder for Vista and later OS and definitely not to be tampered with unless you know what you are doing !!

You are posting as a CSI user , so I would suggest you take it up directly with Secunia at support@secunia.com when they are back to work on Tuesday 6th April .

Take care
Anthony

Hi Anthony,
Thanks for helping, but CSI customers should preferably write csc@secunia.com, or contact their customer representative.
