Just a heads up for everyone!

I just wanted to post that they released a new Shype version today that Secunia PSI did not detect. I do not know if this removes the browser vulnerability for IE or FireFox. I assume if you disable the Skype intergration for both browsers that it is not an issue anyway.

if you have installed the update but it's not showing in the Secunia list of programs scanned, you need to tell Secunia.
To do this, click on the link at the bottom of the screen where the programs are displayed. It looks like this:

Thank's for the heads up! I have been using Secunia PSI for about a year now and it is definately the top resource for this type of information.
