This is what Secunia advises as an level 2 security issue:

Insecure Programs Adobe Photoshop Elements7.x
Version Detected
Threat Rating 2

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.x

This installation of Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.x is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!

Secunia strongly recommends that you update this program by installing the update that is provided by the vendor of this program.
Installation Path
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Photoshop Elements 7.0.exe Fix It!
1) Click the "Download Solution" button below.
2) Select, accept, and run the proposed update.
3) Follow the guidelines as provided by the vendor, after pressing run.

Congratulations! If everything went as planned this program should now be patched and removed from this page within minutes.

Alternatively, if you are not using this program, you might consider uninstalling it from your computer.

Downloaded patch zip and ran it. After it ran it indicated that there were no new updates available. Secunia indicates that it remains a threat.

Ran PSE7.0 and tried to find update. None available.
So what exactly is the issue with PSE7.0 that remains a threat?
