Yesterday, Secunia said that Power Point Viewer was insecure (I've been running Secunia for several months now). The links provided to download the solution do not work. I went directly to Microsnot and they said that I didn't need any updates.

Today, I downloaded all the new updates from Microsnot. Power Point viewer wasn't one of them. Secunia is still saying Power Point Viewer is insecure. What's really nutty is I don't have the stand alone Power Point Viewer on my machine although I do have Power Point as part of Office 2007. The alleged bad file is PPTVIEW.EXE version 12.0.6414.1. The file is on my computer (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE). Why, if I don't have the viewer? I'm reluctant to just delete the file because it may be needed anyway. It would be nice if Secunia would tell us what version it should be.

So now what do I do?

Btw, I'm running XP Pro and IE7 (too many sites I use still have problems with IE8).

I have exactly the same problem that you have described. No update is available in Microsoft update. Is this a Secunia problem?

I have just uploaded & installed all the updates from Microsoft "Patch Tuesday"

I also use Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

What PSI is pointing to looks to be correct. Embedded in Powerpoint is a PPView EXE file.(PowerPoint Viewer)

The correct & secure version of that file is:

PPTVIEW.EXE version 12.0.6502.5000 dated 19/6/2009 size 1.91MB.

Have U got SP2 installed which was issued on or about that date?

As already described by Lady Fitzgerald I appear to have the same system configuration. I get the same response to the Secunia proposed solutions and the latest patches from microsoft do not address the alleged fault.

Last night my Secunia scan detected no insecurities and I would like to know what caused Secunia to detect this insecurity? The last download I can find for Power Point is the MS Office 2007 SP2 dated April 2009.Is Secunia aware of further updates?

Until something in the way of a more tangible solution is found I will ignore this alert.

Lady Fairchild wrote "Heck I can't find the damn thing" if she is referring to the version mentioned by Mr Joyce I just cut, paste and googled then attempted to download but windows would not let me proceed; with a message that seemed to imply that the download did not apply to me. If she is referring to the insecure version that can be found by following the file path provided by Secunia. Hope that clarifies matters.

Hi

I have Office 2007, on a WinXP SP3, with all updates installed.

I tried to install the patch you suggested but it showed me this popup: http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/1319/39110781.png

My about of Office PowerPoint looks like this: http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/5475/54024493.png

What else can I do?

Thanks in advance,

Frank,
Thank U. I have taken a look - this appears like a problem that existed in May this year - why it has reappeared is puzzling.

I need to check something with Secunia Support before I try to give another possible solution.

Nice to see U can easily post graphics to the Forum. Many have tried & failed - standby for a high jack of this thread asking how U did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FWIW ,I have an up to date stand alone PPT Viewer 2007 ; the actual problem may have arisen because PSI stopped detecting it (for me - as PSI sometimes does) some time ago ; yesterday , PSI showed me a pop up bubble showing it had detected it anew - this may just be coincidental with "patch Tuesday".

Thank U. That is what I have written to Secunia Support about - looks like they have been tinkering.

Edit: Secunia Support have confirmed they updated the detection rule for PowerPoint Viewer.

It is now worth checking if the problem still exists with a full PSI scan. If the problem persists & U require help please post the file path back to the forum.

I FINALLY got rid of the stupid thing. On a hunch, I downloaded and installed Power Point Viewer. When I rescanned with Secunia, it showed a slew of updates being needed so I went to Microsnot Update, downloaded and installed all those updates (this is in addition to the updates from yesterday). When I rescanned, the positive had gone away. I then deleted Viewer using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel. After that, I checked out Power Point and it seems to be working ok.

Hey

Thanks Maurice. It's just a method I always use. :)

As for the PowerPoint issue, PSI is still detecting it as insecure.

Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE

I've two systems that both use PSI and both have the same issue with the MS Power Point Viewer 2007 (part of the MS Office 2007 suite).

I don't see a way to attach or paste the info, so the short version:

version detected 12.0.6414.1000 location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE

It's the only pptview.exe I see (other than some MSOcache installer version).

Hope Secunia gets to the bottom of this one.

Frank,
Looks like PSI has found a vulnerability in your viewer as a result of a cock up by Microsoft back in May.

I can see no reason why the solution given by @Lady Fitzgerald should not work. If U prefer U can use my solution which I have just updated for U & tested it on my "Test PC".

POWER POINT VIEWER EMBEDDED IN MICROSOFT OFFICE 2007
================================================== =

The only reason the Office suite has the PPTVIEW file embedded is to facilitate the option to use it when the PUBLISH & PACKAGE TO CD command is evoked.

Office Suite users have 2 options:
1. Rename the insecure file - details are at 1. below. This will remove the insecurity.

2. If U are a regular user of the PUBLISH & PACKAGE TO CD command carry out a self help work around.

WORK AROUND.
I apologise for the length of the work around. Hopefully it will result in the most novice user being able to update their expensive Office Suite to full unlimited functionality.

Here we go!

1.Click START>select RUN>copy & paste this into the box - C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Microsoft Office\Office12 - now click OK.
From the window that opens scroll down & look for a file called PPTVIEW.EXE - Right click on it & RENAME it PPTVIEW.EXE_OLD
Close all open windows.

The insecurity reported by PSI has been removed.
================================================




INSTALLING THE UPDATED FILE.(ONLY REQUIRED IF U USE THE PUBLISH & PACKAGE TO CD COMMAND

1.Download this file and SAVE to DESKTOP - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?fa...
2. Those without Winzip Professional installed need to download & install this programme: http://www.filehippo.com/download_7-zip/
3. Once 7Zip is installed right click on the Microsoft downloaded file on the desktop>scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN ARCHIVE
4. A window will open - Look for this file (0) 1013280 right click on it>scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN INSIDE - now look for a file pptview.msp - scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN INSIDE - now look for a file PATCH_CAB near the bottom of the page.
6. Right click on PATCH_CAB>scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN - a separate window will open showing the file PPTVIEW_0001 - this is the file U want to patch your Office set up.
7. Right click on file PPTVIEW_0001 - select COPY TO - a box will appear - copy & paste this into the "Copy To" box - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ then click OK (Nothing appears to happen but keep the faith)
8. Close all open windows.

COMPLETING THE UPDATE.

1.Click START>select RUN>copy & paste this into the box - C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Microsoft Office\Office12
2.Scroll & look for 2 files:
PPTVIEW.EXE_0001
PPTVIEW.EXE_OLD
3.Right Click on the PPTVIEW.EXE_0001 file>select RENAME & rename it PPTVIEW.EXE (The icon will change to reflect it is a Microsoft active file)
4.Right Click on PPTVIEW.EXE_OLD and select DELETE.

Your Microsoft Office 2007 is now secure & fully functional.

U can now remove the Microsoft downloaded file from the desktop & uninstall 7Zip via Add/Remove if no longer required.

Frank,
Pleased everything is now OK.

@stevebythebay
Your turn now! Secunia have done their job & pointed out the vulnerability to U & where it is. They cannot & will not do anything else for U.

U can see from Frank's reply that it is easy to fix.

Thanks for the quick response. I now see the fault, as is often the case, is with MS. And I now am clear on the difference between the viewer exe and the actual PowerPoint program.

I have WinZip Pro v14, but was unable to follow the directions in the above solution.

Here's what I did and where I got stuck.

1) Downloaded and saved file to desktop
2) Opened archive to a separate folder on desktop and found pptview.msp.
3) Stuck. I have no clue what the following means:

scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN INSIDE - now look for a file PATCH_CAB near the bottom of the page.
6. Right click on PATCH_CAB>scroll down to 7Zip and select OPEN - a separate window will open showing the file PPTVIEW_0001 - this is the file U want to patch your Office set up.


When I try executing pptview.msp, I get the following message:

The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch.

I have tried with before and after renaming the PPTVIEW.EXE to PPTVIEW.EXE_OLD. I get the same response.

Moreover, I don't see the PATCH_CAB at the bottom of the page.

In my directory on my desktop, I have the following files:
-DetectionDll
-pptview.CIF
-pptview.msp
-lots and lots of SupplementalEula_OfficeClient_blahblah.txt

So my question are, for those using WinZip, 1) what do we do once we have located the file "pptview.msp" and 2) Do we rename our prior PPTVIEW.EXE to OLD before engaging this sequence of steps?

I had exactly the same problem with Winzip.
Way I got around it was to download and install 7Zip and then follow Maurice's instructions.

Incidently, I could not open Office 12 using the Run command so I opened it with Windows Explorer. When I did so, I could not find the new file.

Way I got around this was to copy the extracted PPTVIEW.EXE_0001 to the desktop.
Open Office 12 with Windows Explorer and rename the original file as in maurice's instructions to OLD.
Then go to Desktop and Copy the extracted file PPTVIEW.EXE_0001 and Paste into Office12.
Then rename the file to PPTVIEW.EXE
Finally, delete the OLD file.

Hope that helps

What if it came as part of MS Office 2000? Do I need to install updates for everything individually. I tried 4 different patches and all said it was the wrong version for my file. But I can't find the update for my version.. PowerPoint Viewer being the biggest thread is version 9.0.0.2716

When I rescanned with Secunia, it showed a slew of updates being needed so I went to Microsnot Update, downloaded and installed all those updates (this is in addition to the updates from yesterday). When I rescanned, the positive had gone away. I then deleted Viewer using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel. After that, I checked out Power Point and it seems to be working ok.


It cropped up again this morning and the same fix worked.
