PSI just informed me that node.js both 32 and 64 bit versions needed updating. Secunia was unable to update node.js. I uninstalled the previous versions of node with Revo Uninstaller Pro. I selected and deleted all leftover files. Then I downloaded the 32 bit & 64 bit installers from node.org. I installed each .
They indicated successful installation after each. I rebooted my computer. I launched Secunia PSI and scanned again. Secunia PSI did not recognize my manual installation.

Hi.
This problem is discussed here : http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/152...

Also, I read that post and I understand that Secunia PSI takes you to this page :
http://nodejs.org/download/ , where the latest version shows is 'Current version: v0.10.32'

However on Release page http://blog.nodejs.org/release/ the current version shown is '2014.10.20, Version 0.10.33 (Stable)'

Does this information resolve your issue ?

I tried the links on the recommended source page for windows msi installer. Attempting to download them indicates that I already have a later version of node installed. This link does not correct my problem. I wish I had a link to the stable version of the latest update for node.js in both 32 and 64 bit. I do not understand these code references to the problem. My Secunia PSI detects my latest installations of node.js as unable to update.

Do I really need node.js on my system??

Dell has it on my system.

Hi,

In Secunia PSI which version does it show the current version?

Did you scroll down on to this page : http://blog.nodejs.org/release/ probably as far as I know , the links shown when you scroll down on this page gives you download url, still I will ask you to wait for few more time and see if a more technical person replies to this post as I do not use node.js and neither am I an expert technical person.

I hope your problem is resolved as soon as possible :)

If you already have the latest version what is PSI telling you about the installation?

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 you 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 & you 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) if you want more help.

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

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
You 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.
You now have 3 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

2. Not sure what you mean by this question - Do I really need node.js on my system??

It is not native to Windows so you must have installed it - if not required just uninstall it.

When I R clicked on node in 'show programs menu' I selected show details. Offending file was in program files and it was associated with TuneUpmedia (an iTunes Manager). I uninstalled TuneUp, reinstalled node.js, and everything is working fine now. I reinstalled TuneUp. It works, and all is well.

ISSUE RESOLVED.

Thanks for hitting the nail on the head.
