Software patches are a continual pain in the ass. Windows Update takes care of Windows and some Microsoft programs, but does nothing about all the other software on your system. One of the first posts I wrote when AuctioneerTech launched in September of 2008 was about a company called Secunia that helps you check the software on your computer for vulnerabilities. I’ve been a regular Secunia user ever since, using their Personal Software Inspector (PSI) to keep my personal machines up to date.
Yesterday, Secunia released version 2 of their PSI, which boasts a new, even easier-to-use interface. If you haven’t used Secunia before, now is a great time to start.
