Hi
I am using PSI secunia and it s a great product.
It s so great I will enjoy a PSI secunia for Linux,
Indeed on Linux platform, with repositories you can update your software but you are not sure that the installed softwares are secure.

So I m using your database as the background for a bash/python script to detect security holes in Ubuntu Linux platform.
Of course I m using this script for my personal use, and I will not distribute it to anyone without the agreement of secunia.com.

As I see the result of my script I ve got doubt about your database.
I m talking of course of non Windows products

I mean
Security Alert for a few product and after no details in 2010 or 2009 databases
Is it normal ?
I will give to you the links with problems :
Openssh http://secunia.com/advisories/product/19347/
Then I cannot see any advise on the year 2010 or 2009
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/19347/?task=...
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/19347/?task=...
are empty.
also with the following software
Gnome Evolution :

wget
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/3416/
glassfish
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/17896/
mplayer

gstreamer ffmpeg
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/7630/
sendmail
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/145/
zoho virtual office

wuftpd2
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/1424/
proftp
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/26671/


Of course this is not a critic of your products and of your database
It s just a feedback
Best regards

@pacotoletole ,

If you look to the right of each of your links to a "vulnerability report you will see the number of Advisories totalled up .

On the left if you click on the header 3. List of Secunia Advisories (All Time) the page will reset and if you scroll down you will get a list of all issued Advisories - you can link from there to each Advisory ; her is all time listing -as in 2003 to 2010 - for OpenSHH.5 (choesn randomly by me) :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/product/19347/?task=...

You can do this for all your/any programme and or the vendor .

Hope that is clear , if not ask again .

Anthony

PS: if an Advisory is showing as unpatched , it means that the vulnerability is not fixed for the programme versions being displayed in the SA .

Thank U very much for you reply.

It s my own mistake.
I checked only 2010 and 2009 alerts cos I was naive and I expected that 2 years old bugs were corrected.

So all the related thread are stupid.

I DO APOLOGY for this stupid THREAD ( and the related ones)

People make mistakes , it's a part of learning . You are far from stupid judging by what you are attempting .

Take care

Anthony
