Every time Adobe CC updates, I get penalized on my vulnerability scans.  I have to repeatedly go through every computer and fix the unquoted uninstall string in the registry.

 

Unquoted paths can make the machine vulnerable under some conditions.  I remediate this by script and then it keeps coming back like a game of whack-a-mole.  Is there any way to fix this going forward to help make our environments more secure?

 

 parent_key     : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Creative Cloud

Value          : C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\Utils\Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe

Correction     : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\Utils\Creative Cloud Uninstaller.exe"

Name           : UninstallString

Type           : String
