A vulnerability has been reported in Google Picasa, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening certain files located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share via the "Locate on Disk" functionality.
Successful exploitation may allow the execution of arbitrary code.
Solution: Update to version 3.8.

(unknown source) 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!
