I keep getting this notification from PSI, Indicating that there is an update needed re: Win 8 and Flash. Yet Windows Update has installed all the new updates available for my Win 8 OS today during patch Tuesday. What gives Secunia? Why does your software keep telling me I need an update that MS tells me I don't need?

Support may pick up on your thread in the morning......I'm not familiar with Windows 8...but have you taken a look thro the Advisories which may offer up some info :-
http://secunia.com/advisories/52589/ and as follows :-

Hope it's of some help
Edit
I notice Adobe has issued a patch for Flash..........
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Security-Update-Ava... but
In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 10 (reviewed here) for Windows 8 the new revisions are provided automatically with the latest update of the browsers.

So it looks like it's possibly a matter of Secunia amending detection rules.

//"So it looks like it's possibly a matter of Secunia amending detection rules."//

Thanks for your quick response.

I had a similar experience in December 2012, after a MS monthly update. The PSI software continued to indicate that further updates were required even though they weren't.

Was told that Secunia was still working out compatibility with Win 8.

The bugs became annoying and I ended up uninstalling the app. I downloaded it again last month figuring that enough time had passed that the problems had been solved.

But maybe not, huh?

I see......I would have thought that (bug ) had been ironed out by now......hopefully you'll get a fuller explanation when Support see this thread....they do seem to be fairly active on the forum at present.
Regards.......

Off chance....just a thought......but have you done a re-boot after installing the updates....and before carrying out a full psi scan ?

Yes I have rebooted(twice in fact).

I also checked and ensured that I had the current Flash ver. 11.6.602.180 installed in Chrome, Firefox and IE.

BTW, I do understand that these things come up occasionally and since I think that PSI is a great security addition to all my computers I patiently await any up coming fixes.

Just thought to check.....I run the psi 2.0.0.3003 version and it's always like a flippin' crotchet after Windows updates......scan times go from a usual 2-3 mins to 5-6 approx.
When you mentioned the compatibility issue with Windows 8; I first thought of that as being with the psi 3.0 version....but then corrected myself, as it shouldn't make any difference because all versions psi use the same detection engine.

I have not been able to recreate this issue so I suspect you may be experiencing a display issue with PSI 3 that we are currently working to solve. Have you tried to close down the PSI interface and open it again? What happens when you go to Settings and switch back and forth between “Detailed view” and default view? These steps may fix the incorrect readings in the PSI.

OK! So I toggled between detailed view and default view...no change.

I also tried closing and launching again...no change.

I then did a system reboot again and ...there you go. Green icon, 100% up-to-date.

Weird, I did the same things last night with no changes, One program needs update indicated.

Anyway, thank you for your efforts. This appears to be SOLVED.
