Why is PSI flagging Notepad++ as insecure?

Same problem here!
I uninstalled v5.9.2, downloaded the latest version (still 5.9.2).
Re-scan with secunia still results in false unsecure flagging.
This should be corrected!

And here too. Initial report on 5.9.0 and persists after 5.9.2 installed. Suspect there is a rule fault, because the rule does not include a new version number that is "secure".

Hi,

There is no vulnerability in Notepad++ (In this version, and at this date), and this issue was caused by some version rules created while testing some planned new features.

The issue should have been resolved, and we appologize for any inconvenience.

A full PSI scan has removed the false positive on my test PC.

If U get the same favourable result my advice is to lock (Accept) the thread to protect your mail box from update emails from any "tag on" posts.
