Safe browser vulnerability issues, Safe browser not updating the Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0.[Solved][Closed]

I've had continual issues over the last few months with KTS 19, Safe browser not updating the Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. I have manually updated Chrome and Firefox, but Chrome continues to show old version, during vulnerabilty scans, in Safe Browser file. Can I disable safe browser and still continue to use Safe Money prtected browser?

Hello Hello Gr33nguy,
Sorry for delay, rejigged the doco a few times🙃
Re: collecting [KTS][Reports], been doing some research, atm, we only need [Application Control], please follow these steps to collect/export 30days:

*** From KTS Main application window
* select [More Tools]
* in [Tools] window > select [Reports]
* in [Reports] window > select [Detailed reports] select right pointing arrow[>]
* in [1][Detail Reports] window [All events] select down arrow [V],
* from the dropdown list, select [2][Application Control]
* beside [All events] & or any selection, e.g. [Application Control], is [Time period]
* select down arrow [V]
* select [3][30 days]
* top right hand corner, select [4][Export]
* a [Save as] popup window will display
* save the text file as [AppCtl].txt to the Desktop
Note, the "save as" will/should default to .txt, if it doesn't just ensure this is the file type the exported file is saved as.
The following screen is when you get to [Detailed Reports]

  • All done, please post the [AppCtl].txt file back to us.
Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's any issues with any of the above?
Thanks so much.

Hello Gr33nguy,
Thanks for the screen print, excellent👍
Re the [AppCtl] file, that's annoying isn't it...?
Do you use any Cloud Storage, OneDrive, GoogleDrive, IceDrive, MegaDrive, if you do please upload & please post the link, if accessing the file (by us) requires a password, please pm me the link & the password?
Thanks again, very much!
Thanks FLOOD
I don't use any cloud storage. What is in that App Control text that will be helpful to resolve this?
Can I disable safe browser and still continue to use Safe Money protected browser?

Hello Gr33nguy,
Welcome back!
  • Re: "what is in [AppCtl] report?
Specific error information. Is the report very big? Could you copy & paste directly into a [pm] to me? please?
  • From your above post: this:

is good.
*** Procedure, (imo), or, put another way, what I would do:
KTS requires a full refresh:
  1. Uninstall KTS - during the uninstall process a set of questions popup, the ONLY question to select is [save licence info], all other selections, leave blank.
  • Reboot
  • Download & install KTS.
  • Reboot.
  • Run a MANUAL database update.
  • Reboot.
  • Run a [Full scan], this may run for a long time, please allow it to complete.
  • Run a [Vulnerability Scan] please allow it to complete.
  • Run [Software Updater] please allow it to complete.
Check if issue is resolved?

Re [Can I disable safe browser and continue to use Safe Money protected browser?], please clarify [safe browser], I understand the second part of this question, not the first, sorry!
