Hello all, over the last couple of days, Secunia reports an insecure program.It is Microsoft NET.Framework version 1.1.4322.\aspnet_wp.exe
I am using version PSI. XP SP3.
If i go to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET.Framework, I see

v.1.0.3705 (133 kb )
v.1.1.4322 ( 45.9 mb )
v.2.0.50727 ( 3.22 mb )

The strange thing is I did have notification of a windows update 2 days ago relating to NET.Framework, when i clicked install, the yellow shield disappeared, and has not returned.
I also had a windows update relating to the UK time difference, I removed it today,rebooted, and was notified of this update again, no mention of NET.Framework.
Can anyone advise,
Thank you for your time

One last thing to add to the confusion, several months ago, I downloaded the software for my HP printer and was told to update the NET.Framework,I did this, however, i seem to remember, in doing this , it created another user account, Aspnet_wp.account Which I deleted.
I have just read this article, which says " It is possible to recreate the user by issuing the following command from the run dialog (changing the framework version number as appropriate)
%systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\asp net_regiis.exe /i "
Once again thank you

I don't have an answer for you, but I have a related problem I'm working on.

My scan is showing 3 insecure programs:
Microsoft.NET Framework 2.x
Microsoft.NET Framework 3.x
Microsoft.NET Framework 4.x

Yesterday I was also showing the same program with 1.x. I took a chance and removed that one through "add and remove programs".

When I go to the Microsoft update page, the only critical update I'm missing is one for ...NET Framework 4.x. I run it, but it doesn't register with Secunia as being updated.

I tried removing ...NET Framwork 2.x from my system, but I got an error saying installed programs depended on it.

My Secunia security system score has risen from 91% yesterday to 96% today, but it's the wonderful world of Microsoft that's blocking me from what I'm assuming would be long-anticipated true systems security.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Following the instructions below from the forum, net.framework, I determined the update for all three problems: 2.x, 3.x and 4.x was KB2416472.

I ran the update, rebooted, and reran Secunia PSI. The 3 problems remain.

Conclusion: Something in Secunia needs fixed. BTW, I'm running XP.

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each one.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) then paste (CTRL+V) that path back to the Forum if U do not know what to do next.

I just ran Secunia on my other XP machine.The only framework on that one is 1.1.
Secunia reported it insecure.I removed 1.1.Downloaded v2 and installed.Secunia now reports this insecure.I guess it would be the same for v3 and v4.
I am no longer concerned.I think this problem is Secunia related.
Apparently some programs require earlier versions, so having v4 and deleting the others is not an option.
Like I say, I will just ignore this warning

If you scroll down to Maurice Joyce's post on the thread with the following link, you'll find some explanation/background to .NET problems :-
Since then there have been further updates; and depending 'pon what OS you're using, here are the current arrangements, when fully patched.






When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this proceduce when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,

KB2416473 is the patch for 3.5 SP1 and nothing else . There are two other patches (for XP ) for 1.1 and 2.0 :-

M2416447 for 1.1

KB2418241for 2.0

EDIT for pilk00 :KB2416472 is for .Net 4.0 only .

You should see these in Add/Remove and in your DLD history @ M$updates ; you can cross-check with Belarc :-

Before fiddling with .NET , which can be a recipe for pain and disillusion , follow Mogs' link and read Maurice Joyce's excellent script .

If you are still in the unknown thereafter , come back here and let us review your situations .

Hope that is clear enuff :))


PS: ignoring an insecurity displayed by the PSI in any version of .Net when there are patches available is like putting your head in the sand ; you won't see the problem 'till it hits a sensitive part of your exposed bits and pieces :(((


It always seems impossible until its done.

Dear all, many thanks for your replies and advice. I've had a long day of downloading ( on a very slow pc ) updates framework 2 sp2, framework 3 sp2, framework 3.5 sp1, etc.

I finally decided to install WGA tool and visit the update website ( instead of rebooting and waiting for notifications )

At last, I have installed every update, rebooted, run Secunia, and got 100%. So thank you very much everyone, thank you Secunia.

Once again, cheers for you time and advice, its much appreciated
