Secunia continues to give me a false "negative" in relation to the program It tells me I need to upgrade to V 2.0.1.
I am alreadt running this and have bben since the release came out.

I keep getting a false positive. I am being told to upgrade my VLC player to 2.0.1 It was upgradecover 2 weeks ago.

System has been rebooted numerous times since then.

It is not a false positive if U have remnants of an old version installed. What does the Troubleshoot Report say?

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4.

It does not matter which version of PSI U are using. What path does PSI give U to the vulnerable file it has found?

Hi Maurice,

I've to apologize the "false" positive turned out to be correct!
A third party application has an old VLC version included which is correctly qualified as outdated.
