Following the upgrade to Acrobat 9.3.4, PSI claims acrobat.dll is insecure and claims it is version 9.3.3.177. Checking the properties of this file I find it is actually version 9.3.4.218 modified August 13, 2010. In short, the latest version.

This is after forcing a reinstallation of the Acrobat patch, reinstalling PSI, rebooting the PC, and rescanning with PSI. ... and yes I am looking at the copy acrobat.dll as identified by PSI - I used the 'open folder' function in PSI to get to the file in question.

Last edited on 20th Aug, 2010 15:47 Hi,

Could I ask you to submit a software suggestion for the file? You can do this by opening the Insecure, Patched or End-Of-Life tab, scrolling to the bottom, and clicking "Program Missing? Click here to suggest it!".
Please write "Attn: Emil" in the name field.

If you submit the file, I can correct the cause of the problem as soon as possible.

Edit:
I believe I have corrected the cause of the misdetection. Does a rescan now show you as secure?

yes another rescan removed the acrobat.dll from the insecure list - thanks!

And thanks for the reminder where to post issues like this within the application.

Sir, I just rescanned, & it still fails the OSI test. I am using OSI even though it would be more convenient to use PSI, it is not legal in this place where I volunteer (I use it at home---it is legal there). Though I am fairly competent in computer stuff (I do a bit of repairing software & hardware here), I did not understand your 'Could I ask you to submit a software suggestion for the file? You can do this by opening the Insecure, Patched or End-Of-Life tab, scrolling to the bottom, and clicking "Program Missing? Click here to suggest it!"' I am not going to use the OSI here for this round. As far as I know these 2 computers are secure & safe. So for the first time, I am ignoring Secunia.

@walkerpb ,

This is a PSI thread and PSI lets you make a program suggestion .

You already have your own thread where you show an OSI detection problem ; your posting here may cause confusion for posters to this thread and other readers .

The problem is likely a "detection rules" problem and should be resolved by Secunia on Monday next .

take care

Anthony

Thank you sir. While I desire to respect your wishes, actually the Secunia official "broke into" the OSI forum with the above reply, & I was replying to that. I only use the forum as is; just having the problem today. I have PSI on my home machine, & will face this over the weekend. Sorry to intrude, but I never meant to do so, so with this reply, I shall leave now.

@walkerpb ,

Secunia do break in , it's their job and their Forum :))

Whatever , the PSI (as in this thread) seems to detect Adobe Reader correctly ; some people are showing a mis-detection of Adobe Acrobat , with it's own thread(s).

There does seem to be an ongoing problem of the OSI not detecting the Reader as you stated in your original thread ; my posting was aimed at avoiding muddying the waters further and not a reflexion on you .

Anybody can post as they see things ; equally people are free to comment as they see things , same goes for voting .

Take care

Anthony
