PSI is showing Itunes and Firefox, but both programs are up to date.

I installed iTunes update 17/9 and Firefox on 20/9. Both are correct in PSI. Did you run a full rescan after updating?

Yeah rescanned and even restarted my computer, Itunes is stuck on installing even though it is up to date, and Firefox is just an icon that says select language.

I didn't see the problems you have, both went smoothly through the installation procedure. You can try to correct the situation by unin- stall and reinstall iTunes and Firefox. U have no better ideas for now.

I assume you are using your new PC which is Windows 10?

If so what is the version and build number? (Start>settings>System>about)

A positive feature of PSI is that it always gives users the full path and version number of any vulnerabilities it finds. If iTunes is installed to the default location it should be

C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe with a version number

What paths and version numbers does PSI give you for iTunes and Firefox.

I was updating my laptop this morning and to my surprise I found the same warning for Firefox; iTunes: no problem reported. However PSI stated the warning for Firefox v. 48 which is end of life but asks to choose a language. The real problem on my laptop was that there was a leftover from 48.0 in the Firefox installation directory. After eliminating this and run a manual scan the problem is solved. I have no idea why this didn't occur on my pc.

Windows 8.1 Pro build 9600 is the version I'm using on the laptop that is having the problem with iTunes stuck updating.

C:\Program Files(86x)\iTunes\iTunes.exe version 12.4.3.1

The Firefox problem is fixed with the latest update plus I ran PatchMyPC and it found a leftover version of 48 that was mentioned by the other poster in this thread.

Your version of iTunes is also incorrect - to be secure you require version 12.5.1.21.

I would do as previously advised.

Uninstall iTunes.

On completion run a full PSI scan - if elements of the old iTunes still appear deleted them manually via File Explorer then rerun a full PSI scan to double check all traces have been removed.

Reinstall iTunes if required.

Because you have NOT had a clean install and the old vulnerable version is still installed hence PSI has found it.

If you are suggesting PSI is wrong you need to check in file explorer and you will see the old file(s) there. You can either manually delete it (them) or reinstall as advised but until you remove the old version you are vulnerable.

Hello

Just for info , I had difficulty in getting Mozilla Firefox to update to version 49.0 using the programme's internal updater ; after waiting two days , I manually updated to 49.0 with no problem .

At first PSI 2.0.0.3003 showed 48.0.2 as up to date and then end of life just before I updated ; It then immediately recognised/displayed it as secure . FF has since updated to 49.0.1 also correctly displayed .

The initial update delay/confusion I had may explain why the update using PSI was seemingly "confused" and it asked you to (re)confirm/(re)select your language . Historically , using the PSI to update FF has produced the same/similar left over files you have experienced , also causing confusion , especially when updating platforms :ie: 48.0.x ->49.0.xx .

Take care

Anthony
