It seems Secunia has trouble detecting the correct version of Google Chrome. According to Google Chrome it's up to date running version: 17.0.963.66 while Secunia still reports me as having version: 17.0.963.56.


As of right now I just have Secunia set to ignore Chrome.

Have you run a full scan since you updated Chrome ?
Chrome does not usually remove the older version/ has to be done manually....else psi continues to detect it.
Deletion of an entry.

To delete a vulnerable file or folder using PSI 2 :

1. Open psi and go to Scan Results.

2. Alongside the vulnerable prog. is a "+" sign.

Clicking on that will reveal Detected Instances..

3. Below, are two yellow folders. Click the one without a red dot.
It will open Windows Explorer and you will be able to view the vulnerable files/folders.

4. Right click and delete.
Perform a full scan to confirm all in order.

It is not a good idea to ignore that which has been found vulnerable.

As you already have the 17.0.963.66 m on your pc...that should now show in Scan Results.

Hope this helps.......regards.
