The solution to fixing the security vulnerabilities in the Python dll in this instance does not solve the problem because the offending dll is part of Calibre2 not part of the Python programming package the solution wants to install. I updated Calibre2 to the latest version, rescanned and still have the error.

The following is the trouble shooting report from PSI:

Program Name:
Python 2.7.x

Security State:
Insecure

Download Link:
http://www.python.org/getit/

Instances Found:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Calibre2\DLLs\python27.dll, version: 2.7.1150.1013

Last System Scan (localtime):
2. Jun 2012, 00:57

Operating System:
Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 7

Any help in solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

U are correct in that it looks like another false positive & Secunia need to tweak their database.

I have been dealing with Secunia Support on numerous issues like this.

U can report this as a bug by email to support@secunia.com or I am happy to do it for U.

In the interim I would do nothing else in trying to fix the issue.

Please note there is no official support over the weekend.
