Secunia have already addressed this problem. If U have the plugin installed it will show up. The previous post on VLC is below:


Hi,

If you haven't install the browser plugin for a specific program, that program shouldn't put your browser at risk.
To determine which plugins your browser uses, please refer to
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883256
for internet explorer, or simple enter "about:config" in the Firefox address bar.

Hope this helps.

For Windows users the most practical solution is to update to 1.1.0.0 since they never released version 1.0.6 precompiled binaries. VLC is difficult to install from source code on Windows.
