OSI will not recognize the installation of Microsoft Vista Service pack 2 KB981852 security update on my system. Hav loaded successfully multiple times. Have rebooted and run again. Have run BELARC and it recognized the update. Any ideas?

I am afraid I have not been able to reproduce this issue.

If you check Microsoft Update, install all available patches, reboot and run a full scan with the OSI, are you still marked as Insecure?

Hi ,

The Secunia PSI/OSI support staff may well have gone for the weekend so not much is likely to change from their end before Monday CET .

If Microsoft updates - not simply Windows updates - are saying you have no outstanding updates and you have rebooted and you have Belarc updated (for the M$ updates of the 15th) and it is also saying you are secure with all hotfixes in place , then you probably are and the OSI detection rules may need further adjustment .

You can either install the PSI to get more technical details or sit tight until Monday .

Come back here if you need more advice .

Anthony

F.Y.I. I do not know what part of the country you are in? Here is an F.Y.I. that may help.


If I am not mistaken the update you are speaking of was part of MS update Tuesday and was part of a 14 update down load . We had a similar, much debated, event once before,and I believe that the only answer left was faulty code in a primary server at Microsoft. I suggest you refer to your event log and see what it has to say and if not indicated check with Microsoft directly. Especially if all other updates were successful


Refer to:http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/289...

"How about a server distributing bad code from V.I.P. Either primary or mirror?? Either way I am sure it is patched by now." i.e. Monday
