I received a whole bunch of emails with "Secunia Security Advisories" in the subject line. Are these all legitimate? I've never seenso many!! One of them wants me to download the latest PSI 2.0 which I already have. Is that request legitimate?

Right click on the Tasktray icon>about>the version number should be 2.0.0.3001.

That will give a clue.

Hello.
If you don't want to receive the Advisories, go to "My Profile" on the left of this page and uncheck the box concerning. What fingerwork is legitimate these days ?!
