We use a scanning tool to check for vulnerabilities. After upgrading to 10.1 our scanning tool still picks up vulnerabilities, mostly associated with the nppdf32.dll. When we look at the version of this file, it is still the adobe 9's version of the file. Why would the uninstall of version 9, followed by the install of 10.1 not replace this file with the newest version?
I find that file (v10.1.0.534) on my system in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\Browser
In what folder do you have that v9 version? Perhaps it was not deleted from the Reader 9 folder during the uninstall? (It may have been in use with an open browser during the uninstall?)
Ok. Had to log in at work to get more info.
Upgrade was to 10.1.0 (checked adobe "about). Installs were successful.
Scanned for vulnerabilities and nppdf32.dll comes up in the scan as being outdated for "Acrobat Reader v9.4 Memory Corruption Vulnerability - The Exploit-DB Ref : 15419" "Adobe Reader and Acrobat Security Update (APSB11-03)"
The version of nppdf32.dll that shows up on the machines is 10.0.0.396 located in the c:\pgm files\adobe\reader 10.0\reader\browser and c:\pgm files\adobe\reader 10.0\reader\air.
And actually we upgrade from a version 9 of adobe, so anything left over from it would have been a v9. Don't understand why it didn't lay down the 10.1 version of nppdf32.dll.
