Now it doesn’t just tell you what’s out of date or vulnerable – it offers to download and install the updates for you. And that’s exactly why you want to install this on your “technically challenged” friend and family PCs.
Secunia aims to solve this problem with the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) 2.0 featuring automatic updates that are truly automatic. Truly in the sense that, if the user prefers, the Secunia PSI 2.0 can install most security updates without requiring the user to download, run, or otherwise perform manual actions to patch their PC.
Pretty cool stuff.
One note though. When I first installed the 2.0 version it seemed to be stuck in a never-ending scan-and-report loop. Fortunately, after the next reboot it was just fine and has been well behaved ever since.
