Hello, I am NEW (today) to this forum so please forgive me if I make any mistakes.

My weekly Secunia check tells me I have one programme that needs patching - "Adobe SGV Viewer 3.x"

The usual link is there to click on to patch the programme. I did so and it made no difference. I tried closing down and rebooting. Scanned again. Still no change.

Left it half an hour and rescanned it. No change. Tried clicking on the patch button again, many times.

What am I doing wrong? Please help.

There is no patch. That programme should be showing in End Of Life.

It is no longer supported by Adobe.

According to Wikipedia ,

"As of 19 March 2009 (2009 -03-19)[update], Internet Explorer 8, the latest release of Windows Internet Explorer, is the only current major browser not to provide native SVG support. Internet Explorer requires a plug-in to render SVG content. There are a number of plug-ins available to assist including:

Adobe SVG Viewer from Adobe Systems plugin supports most of SVG 1.0/1.1. ... However, on 1 January 2009, Adobe Systems discontinued support for Adobe SVG Viewer.

Google Chrome Frame from Google can support all web elements supported by Webkit, including SVG 1.0 and partially SVG 1.1.

RENESIS Player 1.0 for Internet Explorer from examotion GmbH, first released on April 2008, supports SVG 1.1 on IE 6.x and 7.x and is available for download free of charge.

Ssrc SVG Plugin from Savarese Software Research Corporation is a plug-in for rendering SVG in Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) versions 6, 7, and 8 on Windows XP, Server 2003, Vista, and Server 2008. In addition, the plug-in enables Internet Explorer to load Mozilla XUL applications.

Corel SVG Viewer

Batik, a widely deployed Java plugin

Bitflash, an SVG viewer intended for mobile devices, which can be installed as an IE plugin

Ikivo, an SVG viewer intended for mobile devices, which can be installed as an IE plugin

GPAC, targets SVGT 1.2"

RENESIS Player 1.0 sounds like a good deal if you go back to IE7.

good luck to all;


XP Home
Chrome, Firefox, IE8
