PSI says my Winamp 5.623 is insecure, and DLed a newer version, 5.63.

HOWEVER, that version IS NOT available on www.winamp.com (5.623 is still the offered current version), AND has NO copyright, version, or other security info in the details for the install file.

Thus, I DO NOT trust it, and that's not a good thing for Secunia to have happening.

Can someone explain WHAT exactly is going on??

Is Secunia trying to install via a SPS wrapper package?

If it is via SPS it is perfectly safe having been checked & wrapped by Secunia for auto/manual install.

A security & cosmetic update are certainly being advertised by the vendor here:

http://www.winamp.com/help/Version_History#Winamp_...

If not happy with the way Secunia package their updates perhaps best U contact the vendor & get them to update their install link to correspond with their version announcement.

Hope this helps.
