Hello,

I hope someone from Secunia reads this: I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 installed on my notebook. It is shown as "Insecure". When I run the 7.03 fix that is provided with the "Install solution" button the fix program says that the fix is already installed. It seems that PSI (1.5 and 2.0) don't recognize that the fix is already in place. Rescannin stills shows the program as "insecure". This might be due to the fact that the fix doesn't change the version no. of the PSE program. It just fixes the ACL of a certain file. So PSI bothers me with an "INSECURE" warning when, in fact, the vulnerability doesn't exist.

I think this should be considered a bug in PSI.


Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank;

If you're still around (BTW sorry your thread was missed), looks like the same problem here: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/696...

Yes, this is the same problem. PSI doesn't see the fix because the fix doesn't change any version numbers of any files. AFAIK it just changes the ACL of a file and updates the version no. in the "installed programs" list.

Frank

Hi Frank;

Keep an eye on the other thread (subscribe to), I've asked Maurice Joyce to have a look, he's usually up on Adobe products.
