If U are part of the Apache Project I am surprised U cannot see the update. Are U sure U require this programme?

First delete the vulnerability as follows:

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

To delete a vulnerable file or folder found by PSI try this:

1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable file or folder.
C:\ProgramData\SingleClick Systems\apache\bin\httpd.exe, version: 2.2.6

6. Right click on it & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.


Now download version 2.2.19 from the link Secunia gave U in the Troubleshoot Report - complete another full scan & the problem should be fixed.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I completed the steps. All is well... BUT: Do I need to reinstall this application? I don't know what it's used for. It came installed on my Dell computer. I downloaded what I think is the correct file from the Apache site but when I unzipped it there were hundreds of files. It's not clear to me how to install it.

I would not bother. Looks like a bit of OEM dross. If U do not know what it does or what it is for it is clearly not required.

One thing for sure Windows will work flawlessly without it.
