I have updated to latest version of Google Picasa version 3.9.0 (Build 136.09, 0) , still kasperski Internet security 2013 detects a file (expwebsites.yti) in the latest Picasa Package as vulnerable.

I receive the same within AVG, Norton and McAfee after upgrading.

Upgraded Google Picasa version 3.9.0 (Build 136.09, 0) and it detected the same file as you (expwebsites.yti).

Will look around for more information on this and post here!
