Since yesterday the new version for foxit reader 5.4 is out. The previous 5.3.1 was unsecure following the link:

http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2012/Aug/293

Why doesn't PSI 3 give any hint?

Thanks
Klaus

Thanks Maurice for your advice. But still just before I did the update on my machine PSI 3 was 'green' showing all progs as updated. Why?

When did it complete the last scan? That could be a reason.

Failing that, I would email Secunia Support at support@secunia.com with a screenshot of the error if it happens again.

The last scan was done a few days ago. Shouldn't the notification come without a scan also?
(After PSI has connected with the database?)

Either way, in this instance it should really have shown.

I believe I have a similar issue with Adobe Photoshop Elements 8. Once I get my act together with the facts I will send the info to support & include this thread as an example of another possible error in detection.

Hope this helps.
