My computer is running windows 7 Home Premium version
Secunia just notified me that I have 13 unsecured programs.. They are all
listed as windows live mail..
Trying to patch them does not work. It takes me to the windows update page
and doing a scan shows no updates available. I have update set to do it automatically and all are already updated. So no updates for this program.

Is this a malfunction of the Secunia program?
I don't know what else to do about it..

Any suggestions.. will be appreceiated.

Thank You.

I too have Win7 Home Premium and Live Mail.

Live Mail components shown in this morning's Secunia scan are:
Windows Live Mail .6.1.7600.16385
Windows Live Mail 14.0.8089.796 and
Windows Live Mail (64 bit) .6.1.7600.16385

They are shown in the Patched list i.e. no problems!

I'm just about to install Live Mail on my Desk Top (XP) so will scan that as soon as I learn how to "transfer" my Secunia ID to that. (I have a separate Thread on that.)

Sorry I can't be helpful - I'm posting this in case you have earlier versions of Live Mail.

Can you post the path to these vulnerabilities? Do you also have a patched version shown?

With so many copies of the same program, it seems likely that these are backup copies.

Hi there. PSI also seems to have incorrectly identified Live Mail as being vulnerable, and like you the "Download Solution" only takes you to Windows Update...and a scan shows no updates!

I did install some updates recently so I got PSI to rescan my system...and hey presto, the Windows Live Mail disappeared from the list of vulnerable software and now shows as being patched.

Although PSI normally updates its listings when a patch is installed, I've noticed occasions when it doesn't and a manual rescan is required.

Hope this helps.

hi

Yesterday several components of Windows Live were shown as insecure on my laptop, following a Windows update shortly after logging on yesterday the all became secure again.

In Vista the following updates were installed yesterday:

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - May 2010 (KB890830)

Security Update for Windows Vista (KB978542)

Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.81.1347.0)

Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System (KB976321)

Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB981726)

Update for Windows Mail Junk E-mail Filter [May 2010] (KB905866)

I have no idea which of these cleared the insecurities in Windows Live.

Hi,

The solution for problems with patching Microsoft products is usually to
1) Check for patches, install all available
2) Reboot
3) Check for patches again, if any installed, redo 2)
4) Rescan.

Hope this helps.

hi

Further to my comments above, today I did my usual check through Filehippo Update Checker and there was an update to a newer version of Windows Live Messenger noted.

I went to download the update and just about the whole of the Windows Live Suite was updated with most having the version number as 14.0.8117.416.

This update was not notified by the usual Microsoft Update process.

Michael

There is some information about the new release of Windows Live Mail here:

http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_live/b/windowsl...

This is not a security update and should be released through Microsoft Update eventually.

KB978542 fixes a vulnerability in several Microsoft mail products. It was included in the May 11 monthly security patches.
