I have deployed Adobe Shockwave to all my client computers ann patch installs fine but if I take a look at insecure installations of Adobe Shockwave I can see that Secunia is detecting version as version a look at attachment) and of course it marks it as insecure. I checked file version of swinit.exe on several client computers and version installed is correct -
Same behaviour I have seen in previous version of Shockwave that was detected as and marked as insecure.

Is this a bug?

We have tested the detection of Adobe Shockwave, but we could not replicate the problem you reported. This version of Shockwave is detected correctly with Secunia CSI 5.x, 6.x and 7.x, moreover, it's labeled correctly with Patched status.

Please check if the version displayed by your CSI is not in fact a zombie file (a leftover file from a previous installation which was detected as a standalone executable by the Secunia CSI).

You can double-click on the program entry and then under the Installations tab you can check the full path where the version was detected. Check the file within the path and see if it's an active installation. If it's not, you may want to remove the file, or if needed, you can ignore it in CSI.

Secunia CSI is installed in my company. I checked for zomby files on multiple computers and besides swinit.exe in c:\\Windows\\SysWOW64\\Adobe\\Shockwave 12 which is marked as attachment) I see only swinit.exe in c:\\Windows\\system32\\macromed\\Shockwave 10 which Scan path I have already blacklisted(as I read it is installed from Shockwave 12 installer for backward compatibility).
