I scanned Google Chrome and Secunia report as insecure. Version shown by Secunia is 6.0.472.25, but my installed version is 6.0.472.63 (updated last version). Why Secunia says it is still insecure and has to be patched?

Hello.
psi continues to detect the left-over file....even if still residing in the Recycle bin. Chrome doesn't auto-remove the previous....it has to be deleted manually.
Hope this helps......regards,

This is my bog-standard reply for this (recurring) problem - every time Chrome updates; and is copy and paste (with v. no. amendments, only) - some details you may already know.

Quote:
"A common problem when updating Chrome, is that the new version creates a new file and still leaves any 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 6.x, and for the version number, you should see 6.0.472.63 - if you have already updated to the latest up to date version.]

Now click the tab "Insecure", or "End-of-Life" (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. (6.0.472.63) and the old version no. (6.0.472.25). 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."
