Why is Secunoia PSI complaining about my MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC version 6.4.9.1 when this is the latest edition?

Thanks,
Dan

Have you checked where the vulnerable file is? You could have remnants of an older version installed.

FINDING A VULNERABILITY FILE PATH
=================================

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next)).

Yes, I always check for the file & path that Secunia is complaining about:

Installation Path
C:\Program Files (x86)\Real Alternative\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe

Thanks for your interest & happy 2010!

Is PSI still complaining that Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1 is End-of-Life? Arguably it's not, but the Secunia vulnerability database doesn't recognize that version 6.4.9.1 even exists. It just complains about the vulnerabilities in version 6.4.9.0, which were fixed over a year ago. http://secunia.com/advisories/product/14824/?task=...

Create an Ignore rule for Media Player Classic or install Media Player Classic Homecinema instead.

Thanks - I think I'll just remove MPC & install the MPC-HomeCinema version that someone at the forum recommended.
