After installation of LibreOffice (from 'The Document Foundation' (http://www.documentfoundation.org/), Secunia PSIBeta reported the installation of a new program: OpenOffice.

My question is: what is this (mis)identification based on?
The people behind LibreOffice would like to know this also, as they will be keen to have their software identified correctly.

If you reply the answer to me, I will forward this information to LibreOffice developers.

Thanks in advance,

Gerbert

Hello Gerbert ,

What is the detailed installation path for the detected version of Libre Office as displayed on the results page of the PSI Beta - click the [+] to the lhs of the programme to see ?? Are there still OOo files or references in the LO folder - use the open folder icon on the lhs of the detected version ??

If Secunia support do not pick up this thread (they do not work on the PSI at weekends) , you may need to contact them (next week) by email at support@secunia.com to suggest they change their rules and rename the programme .

Anthony

Anthony,

The installation path is:

C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3\program\soffice.exe

It is a clean install of this package, no history of OpenOffice on this machine.

As you may know, LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice, with a lot of filenames in common with OOo. I presume that the PSI detection rules link a common filename, such as 'swriter.exe' to the package, but I wait for PSI's reply for confirmation.

I have contacted PSI support as you suggested, thanks for the advice.

Hi Gerbert ,

The file you list is usually the one they use to detect the programme and may use another to detect the version . My OOo looks like this :-

Instances Found:
C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe

Close enough to be confusing perhaps . Another way to report the situation to Secunia support would be using the "Are you missing a program" link at the top rhs of the results page .

Let us know what support have to say ; that way other users will be informed .

Take care

Anthony

Hi

I've updated our rules for OpenOffice so LibreOffice is not detected as OpenOffice.

LibreOffice is still in BETA and thus, we do not track or monitor it.

Once LibreOffice is release in a stable version (non-beta), feel free to suggest it with the software suggestion tool in the PSI.
