My PSI reports that Windows Vista Service Pack 2 is not secure.
Microsoft Update I have noticed in the past is really in behind with Updates.

Hello.
I've just completed a scan using psi 2.0 Beta...after having installed 8 MS updates last night....using Vista ( as can be seen in the Signature below): Secunia results at 100%.
Have you checked your updates/rebooted/rescanned ?

PSI reports now everything secure after MS Update of today. I scanned the PC last night and there were no Updates available by Microsoft.
As I said MS Update is behind Secunia PSI.

MS gave me last month an Update for Access after one week time prior PSI.

I am surprised that Secunia is so fast.

Hi,

Glad to hear you are up to date.

When updating Windows and Microsoft Products, this procedure is worth following, since not all updates are applied before rebooting, and since some updates take several "turns" to install:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all security related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1), and repeat step 2) if anything was installed in this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI.

After following this procedure, the PSI will no longer display any insecurities for Windows or Microsoft Products.

hope this helps.
