[Solved] KeePass - Alter Version Number


  • Community Moderator

    KeePass is detected correctly on my system, also the detected version number 2.39.1.0 is correct.
    But the displayed version number in the app is 2.39.1 so you should show the same version number.
    Tell me if you need a screen shot of the Help -> About window.


    Here the information extracted from the EXE file:

    File name and path:     C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\KeePass.exe
    Product Name:           KeePass
    Internal Name:          KeePass.exe
    Original Filename:      KeePass.exe
    
    File Description:       KeePass

    @olli_s Yes, we should consider indicating this in some way

    he version number 2.40 is now displayed correctly.
    Issue solved!

    @Tom This is why i suggested to mark all these new versions (where you have generic rules) with the New Status "Under Review"

    @OLLI_S You are too fast 🙂
    The reason is that KeePass 2.40 is new and is detected by a Generic Rule, Generic Rules are largely accurate, but subtleties such as version numbers are displayed as is.
    Not until we had time to review the new version will we change it to 2.40 as is used on the website and changelogs.
    I suppose we should consider to indicate this in a way that is more clear.

    All unknown versions that are detected by a Generic Rule are automatically added to a list for manual review and approval of a Specific Rule, which will be more accurate.

    Btw. we've closed for processing of inspections for a few minutes, so don't expect to see new results in the UI before 30 minutes from now (there is a big queue) - and yes, I did add a Specific Rule for KeePass 2.40

    Meantime I installed KeePass version 2.40.
    In KeePass the displayed version number is 2.40.
    In VulnDetect the displayed version number is 2.40.0.0.
