I check for updates with both Secunia PSI and Filehippo, and I did a check tonight. Filehippo shows an Adobe Air update that PSI doesn't mention. Both programs say that my computer has Adobe Air 2.7.1.19610. However, Filehippo says that there's a new version I can download--3.0.0.4080. Is there a reason PSI doesn't show this update?

Thank you!

Jo-Anne

PSI is a vulnerability checker not a general updater - if the older version is secure it will not offer an update.

The FAQ refers:

Hi, Maurice,

In general, the Adobe products, and especially Adobe Air, Reader, and Flash, are considered highly vulnerable to malware. It's always been recommended to update to the latest versions as quickly as possible to avoid security problems. That's why I wondered about PSI not mentioning this update.

Off the subject, does anyone know if one can change one's email for the forums? I can't find any place to do so.

Thank you!

Jo-Anne

Jo-Anne,
PSI will tell U when it is vulnerable hence no worries there. That does not stop U updating to a "newer model" but PSI will not inform U to do that unless the current one installed is insecure.

Provided the "new model" is not in BETA PSI should register it in your programme list.

To change your email look at the top of the page & click MY PROFILE - click that>change the data>click SAVE CHANGES.
