Impact of security issue on very old version of InstallShield
One of our very old products uses a very old version of InstallShield, namely InstallShield DevStudio Version 9. We recently received a question about the impact of this issue on our installer:
My questions are:
- Is our product setup created by this very old version of InstallShield impacted by this issue?
- If so, is there a patch or hot fix that we can use to take care of the issue?
Given the age of the software, I am pretty sure the answer to #2 is a "no", but I thought I would give it a shot.
Thanks for any assistance!
If you are building an installer with a Setup.exe then yes - this issue will be present in installers built with DevStudio 9.
The hotfixes are only available for the versions of Installshield listed in the article - later versions of Installshield have this built in.
