Have tried to patch this program with the advised patch on PSI site but no response and the message advising of insecure program keeps appearing ad nauseum. Any suggestions or is the recommended patch wrong ???

As far as I know the recommended path is OK. If it doesn't work do the following: Open Adobe Reader, click on help in the upper bar, click on
'check for updates' and you see the updates if there are any. The last version is: 9.1.1. Good luck!

I agree with you. I can't find any reference to Reader 9.1 which it says to upload to change Reader 9.0 then upgrade to Reader 9.1.1. any help out there.

I have the same problem. I used the upgrade path from SPI which seems to have resulted in V 9.1.1 which you suggest is the current. Secunia still reports V9.1.x (?) as being insecure.
It says I have version V9.1.0.163 ?

If you successfully have upgraded to 9.1.1, Secunia should show in patched programs: 9.1.1.179. You can try to rescan Adobe reader. Click on the + before Adobe reader, you see a - and some extra information included an option to run a rescan for Adobe reader. If this is not working too, the only option is to run an update from the menu in Adobe Reader: open adobe reader, click on Help, click on updates and looks what happens.

Yes, that seems to have sorted it.
Rescan looks like the answer (for me anyway) - Many Thanks

In my case the scan failed to see that my (free) Adobe reader 9.1 really needed an update while my Realplayer was scanned to be insecure while the Realworks site told me that no update was necessary. It seems that the Secunia team still has to do some more (good) work to make things better..

Check this: look at Adobe 9.1. in patched programs. If the last update to 9.1.1. is installed, it should be: 9.1.1.179. If not and the path for update in Secunia doesn't work, try to update from the Adobe menu.
Open Adobe, click on Help and click on update.

I'm having the same issue as well. Has anyone contacted Secunia to correct this problem? I just tried updating the Adobe reader and after that I applied the patch to see if that works--so far it has not eliminated the security threat message. It's annoying.

Not a problem with Secunia PSI but with Adobe-this has been very well documented here on this Forum. Try the following & see if your problem is solved. In some cases the old and insecure version of a program is not automatically removed when installing the new and secure version. That means then even though you get the new version installed correctly, you still have the old version installed which will still be detected by the Secunia PSI.

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow these guidelines using the Advanced interface:

* Click on the entry of the program to "expand" it.
* Click on Technical details to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected program

Regards, wr

I still have a problem! I took Adobe reader off my computer. Then I searched for any mention of adobe reader and when they showed up I deleted them. When I ran Secunia PSI it still shows there is a problem with "Adobe Reader 9.x". Do you have an answer?

Hi
The PSI can show you the path of the detected insecure files.
This may help you solve your problem.

(Hover the cursor over the insecure program to get path in Simple Interface)
(Click the [+] next to the insecure program to get path in Advanced Interface)

Try opening adobe reader and clicking on help, then click on check for updates; after downloading any updates, rescan adobe reader on PSI's advanced mode and your security issue should be resolved. It worked for me and others who have written to this forum.
