AcroRd32.exe version 188.8.131.52 is the latest version. Secunia is wrong for once; I have tried to contact them about it since last week (and so have several others), but so far no reply from them.
Your Adobe Reader is safe; just wait until Secunia has fixed the problem.
July 9 2008 When I run secunia inspector I am still getting a message that I have an earlier version of Adobe Reader installed though I have 8.1.2 including the security update for 8.1.2 installed. Here is what I get:
This installation of Adobe Reader 8.x is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!
The detected version installed on your system is 184.108.40.206, however, the latest secure version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 220.127.116.11.
Update to Adobe Reader 18.104.22.168 and apply Security Update 1.

Why is this?
That is a bug of secunia inspector.
In an attempt to resolve the same problem I elected to install Adobe Reader 9. However the install fails, even after repeated downloads, with an error stating "This installation requires Windows 95/98. Setup is now terminating." I also have an ATI Display Driver window that popped up after the Adobe Reader 9 install reached 100%.
This Secunia bug has a lot of flavors. :(
BTW I'm running Windows XP SP3.
