The scan states one security threat but I can not find out what it is.

Hi Patriot41 & welcome to the Forum

The insecurity should be listed in the Insecure, End -of -Life, or Secure Browsing tab.

Two were listed in the Insecure: Adobe SVG 3.x and Google Chrome 4.x. I have downloaded both of them and re ran the scan and it states you have one but the two are still listed.

Hi Patriot41;

Google Chrome 'leaves' the previous version in a folder which can easily be deleted. Just look for the one with the older version (smaller number).

Adobe products usually leave behind old junk that is harder to ferret out. Here's a good place to start: http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/

If you need more help, wr or I would be happy to pitch in.

I'm about done for today but will subscribe to this thread and will check back tomorrow.


regards;

Fred

Here's a tried & true method for dealing with Chrome from
TiMow who posts regularly on this Forum.

"A common problem when updating Chrome, is that the new version creates a new file and still leaves the old insecure file, which PSI reports. This old file needs to be manually removed.

You need to use PSI on the Advanced mode interface - click "Advanced" on top right of PSI window, then "OK". Along the top is a series of tabs.

Firstly, to check if Chrome is correctly updated/patched, go to the tab "Patched" and click - here is a list of all your patched programs.

Scroll down to Google Chrome 4.x, and for the version number, you should see 4.1.249.1064 - if you have already updated to the latest up to date version.

Now click the tab "Insecure" (red lettering, when there's a problem). The old Chrome file should be listed here. On its left is "[+]" - click on this to reveal toolbox icons, then find "Open Folder" and click this.

This takes you to the location of the old Chrome file. You should see both the up to date version no. (....1064) and the old version no. (....1045). Make sure the old version no. is highlighted, right click, then delete.

This now goes to recycle bin, where you probably need to further delete it (as PSI also reports its contents). Reboot your PC and full re-scan PSI - this should now resolve this problem.

If your require further assistance, then post back here."

As for dealing with Adobe SVG viewer the same basic steps as listed
above will probably be a good starting point. The only Adobe product
I use is Flash Player so I have no personal experience with SVG.
In checking the link provided by thedillpickl the first thing I
noticed was that Adobe ceased support in 2009.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

Hi all

Thanks for the quote wr.

Just one small clarification needed to avoid any confusion.

Although wr copied and pasted my standard response to this problem, he chose a version that was slightly adapted for one users specific problem, who had an older, insecure version present (4.1.249.1045).

Where you see "and the old version no. (....1045).", in the above quote, this will probably be old version ....1059, on your PC.

Regards

TiMow
