Secunia PSI reports the PPTVIEW.EXE as insecure in the following directory:
C:\Archivos de programa\Microsoft Office\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE
with the Version 12.0.6414.1000.
After Microsoft updating the PPTVIEW.EXE shows that the actual Version is 12.0.6502.5000, but Secunia PSI still continues showing the previous one.

¿What should I do?
XP Profesional; Pentium 4, 1.80 Ghz, 1.25 Gb Ram
Secunia System Score 99%; 1 insecure program.

Hello Rafael;

You said "PSI reports the PPTVIEW.EXE as insecure in the following directory: C:\Archivos de programa\Microsoft Office\Office12\PPTVIEW.EXE".

If that means what I think it does, the file in question has been backed up. An archived file, that is compressed, would not have a .EXE but a .ZIP or some other extension denoting the file is compressed.

If this is a back up folder you can safely create an ignore rule for it.

Hello Rafael and Fred ,

I believe "archivos de programa" translates as "proramme files" , so using the method on this thread may help you :-

I would like to thank to Fred, Anthony and Spectralkinesis in relation to my problem. In fact the link send by Anthony relates precisely to my case.
What I did to fix this: (almost nothing, Secunia did it!):

1.) To avoid doing a mistake I previously copy PPTVIEW.EXE and paged it to a personal file, before changing it from .EXE to .BAK
2.) In doing so, SECUNIA automatically send me a notification that it did not detected any Insecure program.
3.) In fact, PPTVIEW.EXE has not anymore shown as insecure.
4.) I removed the PPTVIEW.EXE (backed), from my personal file.
My score returned to a 100% Ok
Thanks again to all of you, (Fred, please you should not worry, Gracias).
