Well, I just wanted to thank Secunia for creating PSI. I use it on all of my home computers. The cool thing is that it always lets me know about any potentially insecure programs which I have on my computers. Aside from preventing various attack vectors, PSI also in a round-about way helps me to keep all of my installed programs up-to-date. That is slick.

:)

Have U also installed FileHippo?

This little freebie compliments PSI in that it informs U of all programme updates (cosmetic & bug fixes) whereas PSI is solely concerned with security.

If U want a look the site is here:

No. I tend to stay away from programs like these which install Active-X controls since those controls present a possible security risk in my opinion.

@ GoneToPlaid Here's a free program you might want to check out that deals w/Java & other plugins-especially if you use FF. www.noscript.net.

The weakest link of a computer system is always sitting in front of the monitor.
