I'm running PSI 2.0.0.3001 on a Win XP PC.

I received a notice from Trusteer last night to update Firefox and did so to 15.0.
Secunia still shows me using version 10.0.7.4619 of Firefox today.

Trusteer also advised me to update Java in both Firefox and IE flavors.
I did that as well.

Why is Secunia not notifying me about these insecurities?

Ooops. A scan now shows Firefox 15.0. Sorry Secunia.

But why did you not notify me about the needed updates?

Firefox 10.0.7 is the latest version of the Extended Support Release. This release is intended for enterprises which do not want to follow the consumer update cycle of six-weekly updates.
There was no security requirement for you to update to Firefox 15.0.

What release of Java were you using? Secunia do not appear to have categorised the latest update to 1.6.35 as a security update unlike the simultaneously released 1.7.7 which patched a vulnerability. This may change when they have a detailed look at it next week.
