Entry written by Secunia.

Following the release of the new Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) 3.0 Beta, Secunia’s CSO Thomas Kristensen is interviewed by Robert Lemos in the article ‘Secunia pushes security patches without vendor consent’.

A lack of up-to-date software can pose security issues for all PC users. Kristensen says, “Part of the problem is that consumers' default behavior is to click no to any update request. In addition, the dozen vendors that make the most popular 50 programs found on desktops have a hodgepodge of update mechanisms, making it difficult for users to know the status of their systems.”

Kristensen adds, "For years, we have tried to push out information on patch levels so that software companies would have better updates. The vendors failed to commit."

Also included in the article is Secunia’s approach to software vendors and future partnership plans to ensure increased PC security for private and enterprise users worldwide.
