Within iTunes, clicking Check for Updates confirms that iTunes is up to date. Why does Secunia PSI therefore report that the only program that needs updating is Apple iTunes 12.x (64bit) and is in a constant/persistent state of "Updating"?

Within Secunia PSI, I know that I can right-click the program and select Ignore updates to this program, but I do not want to do this because I want Secunia PSI in part to help manage updates of iTunes.

Can anybody help me resolve Secunia PSI mis-reporting that an update is required for iTunes.

Many thanks, in anticipation.

With regards.

Hi jtheophilus:

If you start iTunes does Help | About iTunes show that you have the current iTunes v12.7.3.46 installed (Win 7 and later, released 23-Jan-2018), and when you scan with Secunia PSI what are the Installed version and Secure (recommended) version for iTunes shown in the scan results?

Note that Secunia PSI incorrectly recommends iTunes v12.7.3 for my Vista SP2 machine even though the last iTunes version compatible with this older OS is v12.1.3.6. To prevent PSI from trying to automatically install recommended updates and getting stuck in a loop I've had to change Settings | Update Handling to Notify (not recommended) instead of the default Update (recommended) and manually update my software if necessary.
