I'm running secunia psi 3.0.0.7011 on Windows 8.1 - none of the later versions work with Windows 8.1 as numerous threads and my own experience bear out.

The problem I have is that the scanning picks up most of the programs on my device, however, it does not find a number of them. I have software installed in C:\Program Files and D\Program Files folder variants. Under settings I have added the scan individual drives (both C and D) and I have done a "Scan again" but there are still a number of programs not found.

Any advice?

Could it be that those progs are not yet included on the Secunia database ?
If so you will need to Suggest them for monitoring.

See the following item in the FAQ :-

I finished scanning with the Secunia PSI and one of my programs are not detected. How can I add it to your database?

When you send us a software suggestion, it is critical to select a file that matches the programs actual version number. Typically, the real program number can be found in the programs "About" tab.

To suggest a new program in the Secunia PSI 3.x you can click the "Add program" button in the upper right corner. You can then select an appropriate file to suggest.

To suggest new software from the Secunia PSI 2.x, go to the Scan Results page and click the "Are you missing a program?" button. Then select the file to be used for the software suggestion.

In order to do this from the Secunia PSI 1.x, click "Program missing? Suggest it here!" at the bottom of the Insecure, End-of-Life or Patched tab in Advanced interface mode, then select a file.

Secunia usually process software suggestions within 24 hours on weekdays, although exceptions may apply. If you provide an email address when suggesting software from the 2.x and 3.x branch, we can inform you when the software has been added, or explain why your suggestion was not processed if that is the case.

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

Hi Mogs.

That was first thought, but the software is "fairly common", but I did it anyway. As an example, I tried Steam. Secunia support came back pretty quickly with:


Thank you for your software suggestion.

The program is already in our database as "Steam 1.x" and our detection rule seems to be correct.

Please note that the Secunia PSI only scans the C:-drive by default. In order to enable other drives for scanning, please follow the instructions below:

PSI 2.0:

1) Expand the "Configuration" pane in the left-hand side of the PSI interface.

2) Click "Settings", and go to the "Drives" tab.

3) Check all drives you wish included in your scans.

4) Run a full rescan in order to get the new results.

PSI 3.0:

1) Click "Settings" at the bottom of the screen.

2) Mouse-over the "Scan individual drives" option.

3) Check all drives you wish included in your scans.

4) Run a full rescan in order to get the new results.



So they were saying that the software was already in their db, and to enable all drives (which I had done anyway). I'm reluctant to submit any more programs in case they think I'm spamming them.

H0ff.

@thehOff

I think maybe it's because you're using Windows 8.1......I havn't seen anything that says Secunia are fully supporting that OS yet.
Have you got programs being picked up by psi on all drives you've selected ?......Are those not being detected, all on other than the C drive ?
Bare in mind, psi won't detect anything in Beta.

Have you done a full scan since ?

Can't think of anything else to suggest at the moment.............mogs........

Just a thought......are you aware that version 3.0 of psi is not a replacement of version 2.0 ?
3.0 evolved from a desire to help more basic users patch their systems.

As Secunia havn't fully supported 8.1 yet....few official statements exist.......I've read elsewhere/other security site....where it was pointed out that some 8.1 users seemed to be having success with psi 2.0.

If you decide to have a look at that; the link for psi 2.0 is here :-
http://secunia.com/products/consumer/PSI/sys_req/ right of the page ! Same procedure....let it remove the previous version.

Hope the info's of use........mogs..........
