Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) 1.0


To continue with some software targeted towards security and self-protection after posting about Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) and Microsoft Security Assessment Tool (MSAT) we continue with one more – Secunia Personal Software Inspector. We did write about this software way back when Secunia first came out with their Secunia Software Inspector.

There’s now 3 versions though PSI (Personal), OSI (Online) and NSI (Network). There was an update to the Personal Software Inspector recently (25th Nov. 2008) and it’s now final grade software version 1.0.0.1.

Statistics from the Secunia PSI shows that 98 out of 100 PCs have 1 or more insecure programs installed! Download the free Secunia PSI and check your PC for insecure programs exposing you to security threats!

VULNERABLE ?
Did you know that many of the hacker attacks and security threats today exploit software vulnerabilities and code flaws?

UPDATED ?
Keeping your PC and especially your 3rd party programs updated requires you to search the Internet for updates and patches on a regular basis – for all the programs installed on your PC.

WHATS ON YOUR PC ?
The typical user has 30-60 programs installed – do you know which programs you have installed? Do you know which programs expose you to security threats?

SECURE ?
Is your PC secure? Do you have all the latest security updates and patches?

PROTECT YOURSELF !
Security patches are usually free and available for download from the program vendors. Let the Secunia PSI pinpoint exactly which patches you need to secure your PC.

The Secunia PSI is a free security tool designed with the sole purpose of helping you secure your computer against vulnerabilities in programs.

    This really is a great tool. When it comes to windows pc’s I am seeing more and more effected systems from Application exploits as opposed to OS exploits. This is the perfect tool to solve this problem. Not only did I install it on all my kids machines and keep them updated once a week (since it reminds me when things go insecure) but I also installed it on several other family members Win PC’s. The only issue I find with this software is 2 problems, the first is adobe and the 2nd is java. This is cause by the 3rd party, and the way the software is installed/deinstalled. You have to run adobe’s uninstall program then reboot then it will recognize the new version is patched. For java, you have to manually go into the directories and delete the older versions of java (which don’t uninstall themselves especially <1.5), then when uninstalled you download the new version and it will update and show everything patched. Other then those 2 issues, my 60 programs get patched easily using the download solution tool provided within the program just fine. Excellent tool IMHO.
