I have Adobe Flash Player installed. PSI is saying that the installed version is 10.0.22.87. I followed the download to bring it up to date. Windows is showing that 11.5 is the installed version. PSI continues to show its being down level. What gives?

Thanks.
Bill

Secunia is still detecting old versions/files. It will do so, even if they are in the recycle bin.
Are you using the Advanced interface(?).....more detail is available.
Click on the +sign alongside the insecure entry....it will expand to reveal the file path. Click on Tech Detail to confirm it.

I think you are confusing Adobe Shockwave Player which is currently 11.5 with Adobe Flash Player, latest non-Beta version 10.0.42.34.

You may have to download Flash Player twice if you use more than one browser. Once using Internet Explorer and again using any other browser.

There are lots of posts on this forum about the problems that can occur updating Flash and the best way to deal with them. It might be worth someone from Secunia making one of them a sticky.

Thanks to both MOGS and DDMARSDHAL.

I talked a day ago with a friend, he mentioned that Adobe is responsible for letting Secunia know of any updates and also updating a table giving the new maintenance level. According to him Adobe is frequently slow in providing the revised maintenance level.

Apparently, Adobe has indicated to Secunia that 10.0.22.87 is down-level, but they haven't posted the level which should be current. In all likelihood, when I updated my Flash Player, I brought it to the new level.

DDMARSHAL, you were correct in thinking that I was looking at Shockwave Player when I should have been looking at Flash Player. It's interesting that Windows can't find Flash Player in the list of Installed Programs. Belarc Advisor doesn't find it either.

If it's of any use to you: just last night I was showing insecurities with Flash....the ocx file. Eventually managed to unistall using Revo and again the uninstaller. Then rebooted, and it cleared.
Reinstalled via the psi page.....flashplayer needed in the overveiw.....updated to version 10.0.45.2.....all okay now.

It's certainly strange that only Secunia thinks you have Flash Player installed. Does it show up as an add-on in your browsers? Where does Secunia find it?

The bad news is that Adobe released Flash Player 10.0.45.2 on 12th February. Secunia are definitely aware of this. If you don't already, try running the Adobe uninstaller http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html and rebooting. Then go to www.adobe.com to download the Flash Player.

Adobe also announced an update for Adobe Reader to be released on 16th February.
