Re: what is it Seconupdater?

I'm afraid you're right about Seconupdater being malware. Stay away.

Re: what is it Seconupdater?

It's provided by Nokia, it is used by Ovi Suite to connect to your phone.

 

No malware.

Re: what is it Seconupdater?

That's correct. I don't know on what basis some people seem to think that it's malware...

Re: what is it Seconupdater?

It is normal. When you connect ur phone first time to pc, it installs some apps to ur phone, they are generally support sw provided by Nokia to work with pc & phone. Some other sw can be listed like mmssync, pc/ovi suite support, etc. Still not sure then check certificate.

i gave about $500 for my phone and Nokia haven't preloaded all the needed software - for anything and everything!!!!!!!!! i'd rather give another $500 for GPS navigation than installing anything that comes from Nokia on this phone just to use Maps.

 

Where is the official Nokia Statement, that SeconUpdater is OK??? I Don't know you, guys, if you tell me it's OK this Updater - there is NO chance I believe you! I don't believe Nokia, either, but i would believe something official, which has been read by millions before me:smileyhappy:

SO please provide a link before saying it's not malware!

 

I Have official link, that IT IS MALWARE

 

Did I mention that my phone's software broke TWICE for less than a month - and all i was doing was calling, receiving calls and messages? no using of applications, no connecting to internet NO NOTHING! WHY NOKIA, WHY!

 

Now instead of Nokia taking care of me, i have to take care of their software! And Nokia will not pay me for this! Advice to the company *free, but call me if you appreciate it and want to donate): 

 

Not only this, but even this can really be troublesome!!!!!!

SeConUpdater is a legitimate support component installed by Ovi Suite when you plug-in your device to PC. You can check that the component is signed by Nokia when installing the component, or afterwards in App.Mgr. When you check installed applications in App.mgr, you can find in SeConUpdater details that the component is signed by Nokia and has a Nokia certificate attached to it. This proves that it’s a valid component and not malware.

Re: what is it Seconupdater?

The certificate for SeConUpdater component seems to expire on 13/11/2014 based on the screenshot and i can confirm this.

So, what will happen on 14/11/2014??? Can anyone explain?

Re: what is it Seconupdater?

You mean erasing existing (old) SeConUpdater and forcing a re-installation by re-connecting phone to Nokia Suite? I doubt that would extend the certificate as i guess the certificate expiration data is hardcoded.
