I am getting the following program listed as insecure by PSI:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe

I have downloaded the full version of Adobe Reader 9.1.3 (Latest Version) from the link provided by PSI. I then uninstalled all previous versions of Adobe Reader and installed a clean fresh copy of version 9.1.3

PSI still detects this version as Insecure.

I tried to get PSI to re-scan the program but it is still coming up as insecure. I have restarted the PC also.

I there any other way I can get PSI to recognize that Adobe Reader has been updated?

Thanks,

Vijay

Same problem here. Uninstalled old Reader, then installed Reader 9.1.0 and added patches 9.1.1, 9.1.2 and 9.1.3 (is there an easier way, Adobe?)

PSI upon rescan still flags Acroread32.exe as unsafe (and v. 9.1.2.82)even though when run it proudly proclaims itself to be v9.1.3.

I notice that there are now three threads dealing with this problem. Could they be combined, please, moderators? It would make it so much easier to keep track of possible solutions.

First of all thank you for everyone that has contributed to the threads that exist in this forum, it was helpful to know that I was not the only one experiencing this and helped me to push through and finally get the insecure messages to go away.

After going through similar steps taking a good amount of time of uninstalling/reinstalling all Abobe software that was installed using various programs including Revo, searching the registry and hard drive and finally getting rid of a like message for another Adobe product the insecure message from Secunia finally went aware apparently from simply applying the update patch by using the in-program update feature (in Adobe reader) although Secunia still reports the reader as 9.0.246.0 which seems to be the oldest reporting version that I have seen reported in this forum when using a 9.1x version. Which I not only find that to be a little strange but the fact that right after uninstalling the Adobe software and installing the 9.1 reader that Secunia was reporting the fresh install as a 9.0x version (I don't remember the exact version number).

I don't know if any of this, especially something as simple as using the program to apply a patch update rather than doing it via the website makes any difference but I know how things such as this can bother people and thought if it would help anyone than it would be worth mentioning.

Take care,
Mumford68
