I've rescanned several times but still the same results. Same program path.

Any suggestions?

Do you see two instances of Acrobat? One in the Patched tab, and one in Insecure? If so, Adobe didn't remove the old files when it installed the newest version, and you'll have to manually delete them.

Hello Hollico

I can't find a thread dealing with Acrobat Pro - there are plenty dealing with Reader - but if PSI insists on finding only v 9.0.45.0 as insecure ; you could post the "installation path" that PSI shows ( use "advanced mode" ) and someone may have an idea which may help you.

Thanks, Anthony.

Here's the installation path shown by Secunia: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe

Acrobat Pro is installed as a part of Adobe Creative Suite (CS3).

Hi,
We've made a minor correction to our detection rule. Could we ask you to run another scan and report on the status of the issue?

After reporting that there were no insecure programs on my computer after the last fix (October 9 until today)), this morning (October 14) Secunia is reporting again that Adobe Acrobat Pro is insecure. This time it says I have version 9.1.0.163 installed. Adobe Acrobat tells me I have version 9.1.3.

In a security blog I read that there is a new Adobe Acrobat patch out but it doesn't appear on the solutions page Secunia directs me to.

Version 9.2 is out & so 9.1.3 is in the "insecure" tab.

Adobe often updates better if you open the programme and use the "update" link in the "Help" tab dropdown menu .

If not you can see the update here :-

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp...

Let us know if you still encounter a problem.

Thanks, Anthony.

The real issue is the false reporting of version by Secunia. I experienced this discrepancy previously (the original reason for this thread) and it turned out Secunia's rules needed updating.

Previously, it was reporting that the installed version was 9.0.45.0 even though Acrobat Pro said it was version 9.1.3. A change was made in Secunia's rules and for a few days it was reporting correctly. As of this morning that changed, and now Secunia was reporting an incorrect version again.

Subsequent to my first post today, I did go to Adobe Updater and update the program.

Hello Hollico ,

I think that PSI may have picked up 9.1.0.163 as a "new" wrong number , as the 9.2 update changed a lot of file reference numbers (at least in Adobe Reader)& caused Secunia to change the file(s) they use as their reference ; they posted this effect on another thread:-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/288...

If this applies backwards to older versions so arises your problem .

I seem to remember 9.1.0.163 being a part of earlier problems. Sort of 50/50 Adobe Secunia.

I know , clear as mud .

Take care
Anthony
