I downloaded the update via the Secunia link. I began to install it and the dialog stated "unknown..." I continued the install based on Secunia's recommendation. When I clicked install, the program ran but did nothing more.

I then went to the Adobe site and downloaded the update which is the slim version and it installed correctly. I am concerned about the other program via Secunia' s servers.


Program Name:
Adobe Shockwave Player 11.x (NPAPI)

If you get a binary from anywhere on the "" website, you are getting an SPS package.

These do work, but are hard coded to silent install. For this reason, it may appear that nothing is happening. However, if you run a full scan the program will update.

Secunia does not modify the contents of the installer.

It is usually easier to run the packagages through the PSI interface as this adds some state tracking.

Hope this helps.
