VLC Player 1.1.7 is released and listed as patched (Up-to-date) is PSI 2.0.
Never the less in category "Secure Browsing" it is still listed as "Unpatched, no vendor solution" with a hint to Secunia Advisory SA41810.

The Advisory does not say anything about the new version, there was only a small discussion about version 1.1.5.
It would be helpful to know, if VLC 1.1.7 does fix this problem.

However it is a little bit confusing that PSI 2.0 says that VLC is patched on the one hand (a normal user feels secure) and the opposite on the other hand. What should a user think about that?
It would at least be helpful to drop a notice to SA41810 that the problem is still existing in version 1.1.7 if and only if it is still present. Otherwise the Advisory should be marked as fixed.

King Regards
