Adobe on Tuesday announced that it will pair future security updates for its popular Flash Player with Microsoft's Patch Tuesday schedule.

Is this why PSI 3.0 tells me Flash needs updating but doesn't read the downloaded update as new? Does Secunia intend to address this matter?

The article is intended for windows 8 users because of this issue.

The two companies' unsynchronized patching became an issue after Microsoft announced it would bake Flash Player into IE10 for Windows 8 and its tablet spin-off, Windows RT.

Does Secunia intend to address this matter? I'm sure they are aware of this.

Is this why PSI 3.0 tells me Flash needs updating but doesn't read the downloaded update as new? No.

When the PSI is having a problem updating a program for reasons unknown.
I've found that running a manual install and rescan of that program is the quickest solution.
Most of the time.

I have now manually downloaded and installed the latest Flash player and rescanned three times. The result is still negative.

Either the Win7 version of Flash isn't the same as the Secunia database is tracking, or there is some other missmatch of criteria the above procedure does not address.

What else ya got?

IE10 on Windows 7, which Microsoft has pledged to release as a preview by mid-November, will not include an integrated version of Flash, but will rely on the traditional plug-in.

Secunia is constantly updating their database signatures for adobe flash.
it is an on going issue.

Adobe flash will show as patched after a scan one time. Then after another scan not be diplayed. This all depends on how quick secunia updates thier database.

I don't use version 3.0 had problems. Whent back to version 2.0.0.4003 no more problems.

Adobe Flash is showing correctly using Windows 7 32Bit or 64Bit OS.If PSI finds a vulnerability (older file) it shows the path to it as follows:

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

Example here of the requirement:

Download link for IE10 are here:
http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/info/downloads/D...

PSI will almost certainly not pick up IE10 preview for Windows 7 as it may well consider it a BETA version.

@Maurice
Thanks for the PSI info.

I know the rest of the info posted. I'll just get right to that procedure next time.
Members should read the whole article on this subject. I created this thread for information purposes only. Didn't think it would get any posts.
