While Gimp uses Python, and the latter may be vulnerable, PSI's reporting of the folder location of where Gimp is installed is false on a Windows x64 install.

This is the first time I've ever seen PSI misreport a folder location since its inception.

This report applies to PSI 2.0, btw.

GIMP should probably be installed within "Program Files(x86)", it actually gets applied to the 64 bit "Program Files" folder.

But PSI thinks it's in the (x86) location.

Even after completely manually uninstalling GIMP from the "Program Files" path, along with the apparently vulnerable "libgtk-win32-2.0-0.dll" file, the rescan of the file claims it still exists in the (x86) location, although it may have never existed there in the first place and no longer exists on the computer in the second place.

Perhaps the previous Gimp 2.6? existed there (x86) and the replacement 2.8 went to the 64bit Program Files location?

Regardless, once installed, PSI still reports a no-longer-existant "libgtk-win32-2.0-0.dll" file.

The non-existence of this file is confirmed by a "SearchEverything" program search on the computer.

When the PSI detects a file/program on a computer it should definitely be there. If in doubt, this entry in the FAQ will help you locate and examine the file.

It is possible however that we need to update our detection rule for Python. Please send us a software suggestion for that file and make sure to put a link to this thread in the comments.

This FAQ entry describes how to send a software suggestion.
