Secunia PSI says that microsoft office powerpoint viewer 2007 is end of life and a security risk. It indicates that download is available-but when I click on it it simply carries me to microsoft update. Should it be replaced with powerpoint 2010?

Hi,

Microsoft Office Powerpoint viewer 2007 is not marked as End-Of-Life in our rules. Do you mean insecure?

If that is the case, give this procedure a try:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all critical patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, and if anything was installed, repeat step 2
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI.

hope this helps.

Thank U. Is this part of Microsoft Office 2007 Suite or the standalone free viewer?
