Dropbox installed on Windows releases new versions frequently, but doesn't update itself. Unfortunately PSI doesn't properly check for updates either. For instance, I am running Dropbox for Windows version 2.0.22, but several versions since then have been released:

2.2.8 6/21/2013

Fix an issue that could cause duplicate folders to be created when non-ascii characters are in the folder name.
Fix an issue that caused endless syncing when encountering permissions issues.
Other minor fixes

2.2.3 6/13/2013

Fix an issue on Mac OS X 10.4 which causes files to disappear after uploading.
Fix a rare issue on Windows which causes Dropbox to endlessly sync files with long paths

2.2.2 6/12/2013

Fix a rare issue that causes Dropbox to change directory names to all lowercase.
Use a consistent image for photo notifications.

2.2.1 6/7/2013

Fix an issue preventing Dropbox from starting up on 10.4 and 10.5

2.2.0 6/5/2013

New notifications badge
Refactoring of core sync engine
Improved memory usage
Startup performance improvements
Finder icon overlay improvements

2.0.26 6/5/2013

Update the Codesigning certificate on Windows. (Only affects installation)

psi detects those programs with security vulnerabilities and those updates which fix them.
Some updates to programs don't improve the security rating of a program....but there is nothing to prevent you applying them.
The Advisory for Dropbox 2x. can be seen here :-

Most Critical Unpatched
There are no unpatched Secunia advisories affecting this product, when all vendor patches are applied..

0 Secunia Advisories in 2013
Secunia has issued a total of 0 Secunia advisories in 2013 for Dropbox 2.x. Currently, 0% (0 out of 0) are marked as unpatched.

Hope it helps.....regards.....mogs
