I've downloaded and applied the patches for Google Chrome 5.x and Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x, but PSI still says I need to patch them. I've clicked the download link a second (and third) time, but I'm getting the same file that I've already applied.

Please advise.

Hello.
Firstly, as a generality, whenever you update a prog, it is often the case that the older version/file gets left behind. This, psi continues to detect, even if still in the Recycle bin. It is the case that Chrome always leaves it behind....tho' some have seen it "disappear" after a few days.
In order to gain more info regarding the file path of the vulnerability...it is best to be using psi with the Advanced interface, ( see top right of the psi panel Simple/Advanced ):if you then click on the +sign alongside the entry, it will expand . If you then click on Tech Details it will confirm the file path. If uncertain how to proceed, post that info back to the forum. It also helps in most matters to include as much info as possible;
particularly what OS you are using.
Regarding Java, there is a post here :-http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/472...
and particularly the post by Maurice Joyce which you may find of help.
You may also find it worthwhile reading thro' the FAQ's here :-http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... if you havn't already done so.
Hope this helps.................regards,

Hi npdavidw;

Welcome to the Secunia forum.

Specifically in the case of Chrome, the current version (no dev channel or beta) is 5.0.375.125 , check this by clicking the 'wrench' in the top right of Chrome, then click "About Google Chrome", this will check for updates & show version if current.

As mogs has said, use PSI in "Advanced" mode, in the "Insecure" tab, click the [+] to the left of Chrome. Click the folder icon, this will open and show the folder PSI is looking at. If the number in the folder name is smaller than the current version it needs to be deleted.

If you need more help with Chrome or Java, post back for more detail.


Regards;

Fred

I have applied the update to Sun Java JRE 1.6./6.x and have downloaded the latest version from Sun Java and Jave verifies I have the latest version, however, I still get the same message from PSI that I have a critical update. Seems like PSI has a bug!!!

My problem was a way-old version of Java that I was able to delete from the Install/Remove Programs dialog. Once I took it out, all was fine.
