Hi,

The latest Secure version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.x is 7.0.3.0.
Since the PSI gets the version numbers you are seeing directly from files on your computer (In this case from "Photoshop Elements 7.0.exe"), what we need for you is a "Software Suggestion" for a file containing the version number "7.0.3.0".

To submit a Software Suggestion, navigate to the bottom of any of the Patched, Insecure, and End-Of-Life tabs, click the "Program Missing?" button, and fill out the form with a file containing the proper version information.

To determine which files contain the proper version information, you can right-click the file, select Properties, and examine the "Version" tab.

hope this helps.

Unfortunatly I cann't find any file with that version-number in that folder. When I run the patch, I'm told, that the programm is uptodate. When I search out of the programm for updates I get the same message. For me it is exactly the same as written in the old thread.
What shall I do now?

Hi,

We believe we have corrected the issue. Does a full rescan show you as Secure?

I just did a full rescan and I'm very sorry: Adobe Photoshop 7.0.exe is still detected as "unsecure".

I had the same issue yesterday. Now, after a rescan, Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.x is secure (version 7.0.3.0).

Thanks for all your efforts!

Hi,

@Runkelruebe
The changes we made appear to have worked for other users. Does a full rescan still not show you as Secure?

Hello everyone.

I just performed a full rescan and the program still shows Adobe Photoshop Elements as unsecure...

As reported by other members, the patch won't install claiming the program is already up to date.

Thanks for the attention

Hi,

Currently, we extract our versioning information from the "ems.dll" file. On most systems, this file appears to have the correct versioning information.

What is the version of this file on your system?

I am afraid that we at Secunia can do nothing to update the version information on this file. If you can find a file in the application folder for Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.x, I will be happy to correct our rules to extract the needed information from this file.
However, only Adobe has the power to control the version information of it's releases. I suggest you contact them for a possible solution.

hope this helps.

My full scan still shows the file as unsecure. I now posted the problem in the Adobe Forum and I will let you know, what they'll tell me.

I am having the same problem. PSI identifies the latest updated version of Photoshop Elements 7.0.x as insecure. Attempts to patch the program fail--Adobe reports the program is already patched. Don't know if the problem is with Secunia or with Adobe, but I am simply ignoring it for the time being.

The only answer I got so far from Adobe was to un- and reinstall PSE. I'm not quite sure if the problem is so serious that I should try it..... And at the moment I don't have the time to risk it!

Does anyone have tried?!

Hi,

Reinstalling the PSI should not make any difference. The problem here is not our scan rules, but the fact that Adobe has yet again neglected to update the versioning information on their files.

If, however, anyone can locate any file with the proper version information and suggest it too us, we should be able to correct this issue.

hope this helps.
