I have run the update & rebooted twice. However, PSI still reports the problem version as being present. In checking the specific file versions, I see that acrobat.exe is in fact still version 9.4.2.220 and is dated 31-JAN-2011, but acrobat.dll is now version 9.4.3.231, and is dated 12-MAR-2011. Therefore, it appears to me that the update in fact did install successfully, but PSI is not checking the correct file(s) within the Acrobat 9 installation folder.

Hi ,
The version detection problem with 10.x was dealt with and fixed by Secunia here :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/790...

if you are saying that the same problem exists in 9.x , please post the troubleshoot report for the "insecure" detected instance and confirm that the programme's internal "About" states that you have the latest up to date version installed .

Hmmm. Yes, I was saying that the same thing was occurring with 9.x as it apparently was with 10.x. I just now went to harvest the troubleshoot report, and just as I was doing that, the program suddenly reported as patched. I am positive that earlier this morning, after I installed the patch twice and rebooted twice, it was still showing as insecure. So I am willing to bet that something was done on Secunia's end in the interim to update how this program gets scanned. Anyhow, thanks.

As a rule , the PSI will record the update either in real time or sometimes you need a reboot and a to run a full system scan ; especially with M$ updates . An individual product scan is often ineffective .

As support are seemingly busy elsewhere and not very active on the Forum , then your opening the programme entry may given the PSI the proverbial boot up.... that was required .

whatever , pleased it's fixed for now .

Take care

Anthony
