I have deleted your other thread to prevent duplication.

I am sure Anthony Wells will be around shortly - he is better qualified than any other helper I know on this Forum to fix your issues on this subject.

Hi ,

You do not say which version of Acrobat X you have installed ; the version showing in the programme's own "About" should be taken as accurate and over rules the PSI in this instance .

Updating to 10.0.3 from 10.0.2 has initially reverted to showing 10.0.1 in the PSI display as per this thread :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/837...

The insecure detections you are seeing/have posted are those files which have been used by Secunia to update their rules for 10.0.3 .

A "full" rescan should now show your version correctly ; if it is actually 10.0.1 you need to apply the Adobe security patches/updates .

Hope that is (a bit) clear(er):)

Anthony

I guess I'm not sure what to do. It keeps showing insecure, but when I try to apply solution, I get a window saying something about cannot find version.

You are correct, but for a day or two starting Monday, April 25 Secunia was flagging by mistake Adobe Acrobat Reader 1.0.1 for Windows as insecure.

False hits of this kind seem to appear more frequently during the last week than earlier. Is this an effect of Spring Break at Secunia?

@morset ,

You do not say which version the Acrobat programme is displaying in it's "About" ; which version is it ?? Have you run a "full system scan and/or rebooted as suggested ?? That should resolve your problem , has it ??

Anthony

@normanp ,

This is an Acrobat X thread and you seem to be hijacking again (less flagrant :)) I see , by including Reader X .

If by version 1.0.1 you mean 10.0.1 , then both Adobe Acrobat X and Reader X are insecure as per this SA :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/43772/

both are recommended to update to 10.0.2 which is a security fix and has been advised/available for over a month .

Acrobat X on a Windows OS should be updated to 10.0.3 as per this SA and as shown in the Adobe advisory linked (above) by ddm :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/44149/

There is no update to 10.0.3 for Reader X on Windows , as yet .

In the frequent past , similar updates within an Adobe product's platform have caused difficulties in updating the PSI's detection rules . Nothing new , not rocket science , more like due diligence ; so patience is a virtue/king in this world demanding more and more instant gratification

You need to specify which Adobe product and which version you are referring to more precisely .

If it is Acrobat X then refer to this thread (already posted above) :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/837...

If it is Reader X then create your own thread .

Hope that is clear and helpful and can be passed on to your friends using the PSI :))

Anthony
