On my computer with WinXP SP3, fully updated, I ran Secunia PSI; and it showed everything as being up to date. I then ran Filehippo's update checker, and it showed Adobe Air as being out of date. Apparently, I have version 1.5.2.8870, and the "new" version (dated about a year ago) is 1.5.2.8900. Should I update to the new version? If so, why doesn't Secunia PSI show that need?

Thank you!

Jo-Anne

8870 was released on 31/7/2009. 8900 on the 21/10/2009 according to FileHippo.

Secunia is a vulnerability checker not a general updater.

Secunia is saying 8870 is secure.

If U want the benefits of the 8900 release which must contain bug fixes or cosmetic enhancements U should install it.

Thank you, Maurice! I guess it's only the installation program that's dated last year. I'm so used to Adobe products being unsecure that I assume any update is for security reasons.

I wonder, though, if the update should be reported to Secunia, just in case. I tried to do that yesterday, but I couldn't figure out how to get to the file to put it in the report--and last time I tried to report something to Secunia, it was rejected because I didn't fill in the program filename and path.

No point really. Secunia keeps an eye out for us - as I stated before they report on the last secure version so in theory could be "out of date" because the latest version could be a bug fix,cosmetic changes or in Beta form which they are not really interested in.

the latest version now is 1.5.3.9120. When you download it, you actually get 1.5.2.8870 first, which is immediately followed by an update window.
