Novell have released a new version of the iPrint client, and whilst Secunia have picked up the security alerts concerning this version, there is a mismatch between the version advertised by Novell (5.72) and the version identified by Secunia (5.7.2.0).

Hi,

Sometimes the vendor will add incorrect or different version numbers to the files they use. This means that something like this will be unavoidable.

However, our version rules should work, so the security status should be correct.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the update.

My PSI report says the iPrint client is insecure:

"The version detected of Novell iPrint Client 5.x was 5.7.2.0 while the latest version including one or more security fixes is 5.72."

Windows file properties dialogue says version 5.7.2.0.
