What paths does PSI give you to the vulnerability?


FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI

VERSION 2


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. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

Please completely close these if in use:

a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail.
d. All Adobe Products.
e. PSI - Unless using version 2 or version 3
f. Microsoft Skype & Plus! For Skype

Now do this:

PSI VERSION 2

1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable file.
c:\windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_11_4 _40 2_265.ocx

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

7. Use the same sequence & delete this: c:\program files (x86)Common Files\Adobe Air\1.0\Adobe\Version\Adobe Air.dll

8. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.

VERSION 3

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.

U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.

Right click on the icon that represents the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.

Double click on c:\windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_11_4 _40 2_265.ocx

That will open Windows Explorer & U will see that file. Right click on it & select delete.

Now do the same for c:\program files (x86)Common Files\Adobe Air\1.0\Adobe\Version\Adobe Air.dll

Run a full PSI scan & the problem should be resolved.

Same problem running PSI 3.0 and 98% score a couple of days. Uninstalled Adobe Flash Player 11x (Active x) and downloaded newest version, so now running 11.4.402.287.
Restarted computer but PSI still tells a programme needs updating.
PSI has apparently started updating of Flash Player hwr. it seems to go on forever.
Have also tried to do a new complete scan of PSI, but scan never seems to start. PSI just tells that scanningrules have been transferred and then nothing.

It did have a few issues with identification that have been fixed.

If you are now happy I will lock this thread for U sometime tomorrow unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
