Hello, There is a vulnerability associated with older versions of Adobe Digital Editions.  When updating to the latest version the .exe file properties do not reflect the version installed and instead stay on 4.5.11.0.  It should read the actual version installed when going to the help/about screen, 4.5.11.187303.  Because vulnerability scanners such as Qualys rely on that version to check if a system has a vulnerability this is creating a false positive 100% of the time.  It also doesnt reflect the correct version in Programs and Features.

Please update the file properties to reflect the actual version installed.

Adobe just released a new version of ADE (4.5.12) and after many years, this time it is a minor version upgrade instead of a build version upgrade. They did this specifically to address the issue that asset management and vulnerability management tools were not able to correctly detect the installed version because in the past the installer was not correctly setting the required registry keys. The download page with the new build is at ADOBE DIGITAL EDITIONS Download - https://www.adobe.com/
