Python comes bundled with some programs, i.e. GIMP.

In this case it was in a subfolder, C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.7\Python

This instance was not detected by Secunia PSI 2.0.0.4003 as a separate installation.

Hope this helps.

regards,
mt

Hi motrodov, thanks for reply.
I haven,t a clue why , or where I,ve got it from, but, secunia, always detects it, and patches it every day, it,s just done it now, just logged on.
It says removed, then a few seconds later, new program ,patched.?
got me stumped why secunia patches it daily, and cannot find it on my system, so must be bundled with something???? only noticed it in last 2 weeks.
It looks like it,s for open source use, not windows, as I am.
cannot think of what use it would be to any program I ve downloaded.
Don,t suppose it,s harmful, just puzzling.
cheers

Perhaps that will bring up some further information that will help you understand what is happening. The exact path of a detected program as well as its version should be relevant.

Thanks EJ,
Found it, but still as confused as ever.
It,s in a temp file ? with black right angled triangle.which holds other files avast, and this is presumably python, ME119282. ME1514602 with a black right angled triangle in front, then resources, with clear, triangle, and support, with clear triangle.
All this is below secunia file?
If I remove python files,or temp file ? I don,t know if it affects something else, ?
Any ideas appreciated.
Why would secunia need to patch it daily? as a new program.

Last edited on 4th Apr, 2013 10:19 I think what has happened is that the PSI has detected Python and then auto-updated it. But the installer has installed it to the default location of the program. Since the detected files from the old version are not uninstalled or overwritten they will continue to get detected by the PSI. Hence the auto-update will reoccur.

To fix this we can probably exclude Python from detection when it is installed in the non-default location where you have found it. To do so we need to know its exact installation path.
This FAQ will help you locate the detected file so you can copy and paste its installation path.

Hi, EJ, Thanks for reply,
Wouldn,t let me copy/passte ??
So, wrote path down.
C:\Users\joe\AppData\Local\Temp\_ME151002\python27 .dll
version2.7.3150.1013

Pragram state; Patched
Classification ; actual Installation

Don,t know if this is of any help, but there is an ignore yellow,as well as open folder yellow;;
but, seems like a red, no entry bar on it ?
That,s as much as I could reap.
are all thats under secunia, in this temp file, belonging to secunia and placed there for monitoring for patches, because avast, adobe etc are among them.
Cheers

Thank you for the information. Please try a rescan as Python 2.7.x should now be excluded from detection when "Temp" is a part of its installation path.

Hi, EJ thanks very much, much appreciated.
Just done a full scan, 100%, no sign of python in list at all now.
It usually does it on first boot of the day, or, re-signing back on after being idle.
See if it re-occurs.?
Really grateful for your help.
I will post tomorrow after boot up, and if it, doesn,t occur, you can lock the thread.
cheers,joe
