Hello,

PSI reports that the application "Sysinternals Filemon 7.x" is "End-of-Life".

If you look at the Microsoft Technet Article for the tool "Process Monitor":
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb...

then you "It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon"

So if a user has "Filemon" or "Regmon" installed, the Solution would be to download "Process Monitor".

Please add this solution to PSI.

Greetings

OLLI

Hello OLLi ,

Secunia/PSI tell you when a programme is vulnerable in the "insecure" tab and offers you help to find the location of a "patch" :ie: a "solution" can be found - it does not "tell you" that you must use it . You alone make that decision .

If there is no "solution" as yet for a vulnerability , then the programme remains in the "patched" tab . The "secure browsing" tab may alert you to the potential risk .

"EOL" is different as there will be no further patches/support and no specific solution is offered/displayed by PSI ; this is deliberate as Secunia/PSI do not recommend products .

So is your "solution" a Secunia agreed type solution or do their rules prevent them recommending your course of action ??

They'll be back on Monday so it will be interesting to hear what they say .

Take care
Anthony

Hi
Thank you for your suggestion

If you expand the [+] next to a program, there might be some Extra information regarding updating or other useful information.

At the moment the "Extra information" in the PSI for Sysinternals Filemon 7.x is:
"FileMon and Regmon are no longer available for download. They have been replaced by Process Monitor on versions of Windows starting with Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows Vista.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb..."

*Added link to "Extra information" after reading this post

Hello,

I do not see the "Extra Information" if I expand the application.
Sorry.
