If you are checking using the Mozilla Plugin Check site, then yes, it treats everything before version 11.0.03 as out-of-date. Unfortunately, Adobe does not offer Adobe Reader XI / Adobe Acrobat XI for Vista users (I have no idea why not).
So for the Adobe Reader X / Adobe Acrobat X series, you will have to rely on other sources to confirm that you have the latest update. Probably your quickest source is the in-product updater:
Help > Check for Updates
(Note: The above is based on information gathered in June, but I think it's still current.)
I wonder why mozilla does not fix this issue !
Mozilla shouldn't fix this because it's not a Mozilla problem. Adobe decided not to support Reader in Vista, so their download site will only install version 10.1.4. I don't know how I got 10.1.7 installed, but it also was listed as "Vulnerable" and Out-Of-Date.
You can find the version 11 downloads here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/. You will need to select the version for XP or Windows 7 to get it installed. They should work, but Adobe will not support them on Vista. Their answer is to upgrade your operating system to Windows 7/8 or downgrade to XP, which Microsoft will discontinue supporting 4/8/14.
