I'm having the same issue. It appears that PSI is not recognizing the already installed Adobe Flash 11.X (Active X) #9 11.5.502.135 (Active X) version. My work around was to right click the icon indicating updating and clicking "ignore this update" from the menu, rescan and you should get %100 score.

@ MGonzales

PSI is indeed picking up Flash version 11.5.502.135 correctly. The originator of this thread is talking about the embedded Flash within IE10 & Windows 8.

Unlike the originator I suspect you have remnants of an older version installed. To check you should reverse any ignore rules for Flash then run a full PSI scan. If PSI shows that Flash is vulnerable what path does it give you?

FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI

VERSION 2


From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

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.

I'm using version 3

The path of flash.ocx is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash.ocx and is the latest version.
Additionally it's also listing the paths where Windows is keeping all previous copies of flash archived in the Windows Side by Side Assembly folder C:\Windows\WinSXS
This is for the 32 bit version, the same happens to the 64 bit version.

I think your point is valid if you are running Windows 8.

My comments were to @ MGonzales who appears to be talking about another version of Flash & another OS.

We have updated our detection rules for Adobe Flash Player. Can you please try a rescan and let us know about the result?
