I’ve been testing this nifty little tool Secunia PSI 2.0 Beta over last 2 weeks and I have to say I’m mighty impressed.
It basically scans your PC/Laptop for installed software, works out the version of the software, checks with Secunia’s database and decides if it insecure, End of Life or OK.
Some applications are updated automatically, ie Adobe Reader, Flash Player etc.
A few screen shots to whet your appetite…
The best part for me is the fact that the application schedules a weekly scan of the PC and checks for updates, this allows the user to almost forget about patching the PC.
This has got to help the most security patching phobic user to stay safe.
I have tried this app on Windows Xp, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008, all with excellent results.
There is also an Enterprise product too.
