Secunia’s free PC security tool, the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) has been recognised by Infosecurity Magazine as a “solution to the malaise of security on the Internet” in the article: "Data on the internet is permanent after 20 minutes."

Ed Gibson (EdTheFed on LinkedIn), the former head of cybersecurity with Microsoft and director of security with PWC Global says; “…Networks are not secure any more and, with people scraping data and cybercriminals creating new rogue domains by the thousand - without any form of supervision from the authorities - users have turned into a band of yes people. We say yes to end user licence agreements. We scroll down to check boxes. We just get our jobs done, but without giving thought to what information is on the internet, or who originates it."

This echoes alarming findings revealed in the Secunia Yearly Report 2010; the number of vulnerabilities affecting a typical private PC increased by 71% in the last 12 months alone. Additionally, 50% of all vulnerabilities discovered (2009-2010) were found in everyday products by well-known vendors such as Adobe, Apple, Google, HP, IBM, etc.

The article mentions that “Gibson advises users of all types to scan their systems using the Secunia web site by using the search box on the web site to analyse the security of the many applications that users have on their machines.”
