Janice,
Can you confirm the PSI is showing End of Life after a full PSI scan. It should do because that programme is obsolete and has been since December 2013.

According to the Secunia database Cisco FlipShare produced a version 5 and 6. Due to a well known Secunia website bug the trail to identify any vulnerabilities is not available unless you have VIM. Not important in this instance due to it being obsolete anyway.

All the information you require and advice on an alternative are well presented by Cisco (the vendor) on their website.

It is never a good idea to download anything from third party crawler sites and in this instance (Software Informer) are inviting individuals to download an obsolete programme without any guarantee it is safe or secure which is disgraceful. The download link offered is dated 17th January 2012 which is well before the final closure of support and is almost certainly not the latest version according to Secunia.

Links are here for reference:

The Secunia database indicating there are two versions of FlipShare:

The vendor (Cisco) informing all used that the programme is obsolete and their recommended replacement.

The Givet Site - the Cisco recommended replacement programme.

The Software Informer site which invites unsuspecting PC owners to download an obsolete and potentially vulnerable programme.
