Secunia PSI 3.0.0.6005 on Windows 7

This morning I was alerted by PSI that Adobe Acrobat XI 11.x needs updating. Show Details shows the installed version as 11.0.0.379.

However, About Acrobat (in Acrobat) shows the version as 11.0.2.

Acrobat.exe has version 11.0.0.379, so this is obviously not where Acrobat takes its version information from.

The only module that seems to have been updated by the 11.0.2 update is Nppdf32.dll, which has version 11.0.2.0 and is dated 2013-02-16. All other modules in the Acrobat folder are dated 2012-12-19 or older.

Should PSI check the Acrobat version in Nppdf32.dll ?

I see now that there is a similar topic http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/138...

I'm running a new PSI scan now.

After a new scan PSI still indicates that Acrobat XI needs updating.

Same if I choose to update via PSI.

I replied in the Acrobat X thread linked above, as that is the version that I have.

The same problem happens with Acrobat 9.x. I've installed the 9.5.4 update, and got PSI to scan again, but PSI still tells me that an update is required. The file it is complaining about is C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, When I run that and have a look at Help/About in Acrobat, it shows the version as 9.5.4, and a check for updates from the Acrobat Help/Check for Updates shows that the version is current.

I think that the problem is that looking at the properties of acrobat.exe shows that the internal version number is still 9.5.3.305. It appears that the files updated by the 9.5.4 update were nppdf32.dll in the Browser and Air directories, as they are the only files with an internal version number of 9.5.4.

Thank you for the software suggestions you have sent us. We have now made some changes to our detection rules for Adobe Acrobat. Please rescan and let us know if you still see any issues.

Acrobat 9 is still showing as 9.5.3 when 9.5.4. is installed.
