I scanned with beta and the programs which it says cannot be automatically updated are the following:

THREATS:

windows xp home
internet explorer 8
windows media player 9x
microsoft net framework 3.x
microsoft outlook express6

how could this be possible. Windows automatic update will not update these ms programs? Please let me know what is happening here. Is it me or is it Secunia? Thanks in advance

NONE OF THE INDICATED PATCHES WORK! (INSTALL SOLUTION)

What are the paths to the vulnerabilities?
FINDING A FILE PATH - ALL PSI VERSIONS EXCEPT VERSION 2 (BETA)

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.

PSI VERSION 2 (BETA)

From the DASHBOARD page click on RESULTS.

1. This will show U the file that is vulnerable.
2. Click the + sign next to the file.
3. This will reveal the path.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) & then paste (CTRL+V) that path back to the Forum if U do not know what to do next.

Last edited on 6th Sep, 2010 10:54 Hi,

If you have enabled Automatic Updates in Microsoft Update, these updates should still install automatically. The applications flagged for Auto-Update in the PSI are third-party applications, that we at Secunia try to make easier to update.
Secunia will, of course, not disable Automatic Updates in Windows. We simply do not manage them from the PSI.

hope this helps.
