I'm using PSI
PSI detects my Steam Client as unsecure (
But I'm using the Steam Beta Client which is way newer than the unsecure version.
I Just installed a update to version (Dec 2 2013)

How can i tell PSI to stop bugging me because of this false detection?

Thanks for your input.

There is more about this issue here:

It is not a false detection. All PSI does is read the meta data of programme files installed on your system.

Either you have elements of an older version still installed that require deletion or the BETA version is using some of the old files to make it work.

Only the BETA vendor can answer that question & the course of action to take.

As you will note on the thread I have pointed to Secunia do not track anything in ALPHA or BETA.

You can of course always create an ignore rule.
