plugin check not working

Veröffentlicht

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "vulnerable - Update Now" for my Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13. and Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U51 plugins.

The 'update now' link takes me to the Java download page which invites me to download the latest Plugin 7.51. but i already have 7.51 installed so the plugin checker is incorrectly displaying "vulnerable - Update Now". I have had 7.51 installed since January 17th and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 28.0 on Windows 7

thanks ...

You wrote the following in bug 1023889

MetaStream 3 Plugin reported Viewpoint Plugin vulnerable 3.2.2.26 "Update Now". When i clicked "update now" it went to a dead link http://www.viewpoint.com/technologies/viewpoint-media-player.shtml

I vaguely remembered reading someing on that plugin so I did a google search and found the following: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/p32 Viewpoint has been blocked for your protection. ...which links to: Bug 539282 - Blocklist the viewpoint plugin

I would remove (or disable) that plugin and uninstall the Viewpoint Media Player program from your computer based on the above and this wikipedia article:

/questions/753880 metastream 3 plugin 3.5.0.36 has been disabled due to security or stability issues, what do we do?

See also: /questions/976775 Why is Metastream plug-in listed when I do a Plug-in Check on what plugins are up to date, I thought it was blocked?

If it is blocklisted, shouldn't Firefox be flagging it up when it runs plugin check?

For example, I have a Java Development Toolkit plugin which flags up "Firefox has prevented the unsafe plugin '"Java Development Toolkit' from running on www.mozilla.org"

Having re-checked, this plugin is already disabled on my machine, but i think the bug report should still exist as it is still a false "update now" to a dead link.

richlaughlin, You asked, If it is blocklisted, shouldn't Firefox be flagging it up when it runs plugin check?

Good question but I think you should ask it in the PluginCheck bug you filed.
