I have run the update on this flash player and it worked successfully but there seems to be a hanger on. I have run a new scan and the 145 version still it shows up. I went to rename the program but it is not found. Is this a Secunia bug?

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6MEUN4lqXo7cUFtN...

The dll is not found in the folder identified: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_14_0_0_ 145.dll, version: 14.0.0.145 (NPAPI)

I have admin rights, ensured I can see the files from folder options.

It is not a bug. What you have is what Secunia call a Zombie file in PSI V2.

A bit more detail here:

If you require more details on exactly what a Zombie files is/does I would contact support at: support@secunia.com

Hi ,

Just to add that in the PSI 2.x versions , if the .145.dll file is not located on your computer , then the "zombie" is likely showing whilst the PSI gets itself up to date . If this does not happen automatically - usually with a tray pop up - then an individual programme re-scan or a full system scan should take care of the problem . A reboot is not likely to be needed .

Does that help ??

Take care

Anthony

Thanks for your assistance. I have run the scan multiple times, rebooted and the 145 dll still shows as an issue even though it doesn't exist on my machine. I have just ignored the file in the program. I still think it a bug personally. Issue closed
