I can never get this program ( http://www.newsleecher.com/ ) to show up in Secunia PSI. Why please ? I tried suggesting it but it won't even let me do that :( Really would love to have this added somehow. Thanks.

Is this the error you get: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... ?

It is also impossible to include a program if there is no version information in the file you are trying to upload.

I have just tried to register it for U.

Version 5 cannot be registered because it is in BETA.

Version 4 has no file version & is also missing a product name & product version in its properties.

Until the vendor corrects the errors the EXE file cannot be registered with Secunia.

That sucks because I doubt that will ever happen. :(

There has to be a way.

There is no way U can do it yourself. As U are aware Secunia works on the basis that it can read the programme meta data on your PC - mainly EXE/OCX/DLL files. The vendor has failed to include any of that data.

I have also looked at version 5 BETA 8 for U. Not only will Secunia not accept programmes in BETA for inclusion but the file details are also missing.

U need to contact the vendor support & tell them to correctly register their files.

Sorry I cannot help further.

How It Works
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

in particular

The Secunia PSI works by examining files on your computer (primarily .exe, .dll, and .ocx files). These files contain non-specific meta information provided by the software vendor only.

Ok thank you.

The problem is the author of the program is not very reliable. Doubt it will ever get done but will try.
