I removed all v of Adobe Flash thinking it was a mess (used http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html); then re-installed it using http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ not checking the google option (why do they include that nonesense?). Now . . .

Secunia just reported Sun Java JRE 1.5.x / 5.x a security threat Cat. 4 . . . I downloaded the solution; however, the Sun window read it's installed on my computer, do I want to download it again. I checked "NO.'

I am sick of Sun and Adobe stuff; more over, concerned trying to find their dang files that open my ports without my knowlege, permission. What next?

Hello.
Reading thro' your post again; I'm not exactly sure whether you are still seeking help with your problem.....the wording is a little ambiguous. But just in case.....you might like to read thro' the following thread....particularly the post by Maurice Joyce, which you might find of assistance:-
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/531... JAVA PROBLEMS ..........regards,

PS.
In future, could you please note that this, the "Vulnerabilities" section of the forum, tends to be set aside/reserved for use by Secunia staff to notify and discuss such.....thankyou.

It is up to Secunia to warn people not to use this section; I'm not a mind reader. Also, my system's reporting Java 1.5 as a threat, and I don't have that on my computer - my Java is a higher v.

Morning.
There has been much contention and discussion on the forum, concerning the reply in your first sentence. History....advisors/helpers and new users have oft been zapped ( scored down ), for having appeared here. Generally, I've not answered those problems of the unaware.
The reason for my request being phrased as it was....understanding that you couldn't have known. I've no idea either why a more prominent warning isn't placed by Secunia...but most, if not all regular members, are aware of the situation.
That issue aside....my post to you was first concerned with resolving any difficulty you may have been experiencing.......I can read a thankyou/manners, at any time.
You do not say whether the thread directed to, was of any assistance or not.
When and if you contact the forum it would likely be more helpful to provide as much info as possible.....particularly details of OS and psi version in use....this info is often very relative to resolving matters.
Including some info in your Signature box will save you the chore of repeating.
You may find it worthwhile bookmarking the following links for future referral :-

Hi,

Has your issue been resolved? If not, does applying the solution for Sun Java JRE 1.5.x and running a full rescan solve the problem?

If not, what is the "Installation Path" to the file? To obtain this, you must first switch the PSI to advanced mode (By clicking "Advanced" in the top right corner), navigate to the "Insecure" tab (where JRE 1.5.x / 5.x will be located if insecure), and clicking "+" next to the entry. The field "Installation Path" is what we are looking for.

hope this helps.
