Hi

I wonder, why PSI (Ver. 3) states, "VLC Media Player 2.x (64 bit)" is not up-to-date, while "VLC media player 2.2.4 - Weatherwax" does seem to be up-to-date? At least, that's what it says, when running update-function.

On the other hand, I had to discover that my Photoshop (2017.1.1 20170425.r.252 2017/04/25:23:00:00 CL 1113967 x64) was not up-to-date before (now it is), however, PSI dit not tell me about Update available?

What can I do about it, or: Why is this like that?

Tks in advance!

Leendert Kip

This is the advisory on VLC - https://secuniaresearch.flexerasoftware.com/adviso...

Once you update to the version advised will be secure again. The vendor site will have the update.

I cannot find a vulnerability advisory on your version of photoshop. PSI is a vulnerability checker not a general updater. PSI will not advise to update any programme which only fixes bugs or is solely to enhance or upgrade it.

EDIT:
This is the change log from the VLC site: http://www.videolan.org/developers/vlc-branch/NEWS
