IT Security & Network Security News & Reviews: Secunia PSI 2 Finds and Installs Patches for Installed Applications
Secunia PSI 2.0 adds auto-update capability for third-party applications to the familiar, free application vulnerability assessment tool, making it easier for users to identify and patch out-of-date applications installed on PCs running Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. Keeping both the OS and applications up-to-date is among the best ways to avoid exploit and attack, particularly against threats not yet detected by complementary anti-malware programs. PSI 2.0 also fixes a bunch of small problems found in the previous versions, fixing Windows rights issues for limited rights users and removing the reliance on Adobe Flash for graphical elements, operation. PSI 2.0 is available as a free download for personal use only from http://www.secunia.com , but corporate IT would be wise to recommend PSI to users connecting to enterprise resources from personal PCs.
