PSI flags version 2.2 as insecure on Linux and Mac, but no description of insecure behavior on the Windows version.

Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client 2.x..........I couldn't find any reference to it on the Secunia database.

Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI)
System Requirements
The list of requirements that must be met for the Secunia PSI to function correctly are:

Supported Operating Systems (32 & 64 bit):
Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows Vista SP 1 or later
Microsoft Windows XP - SP 3
Privileges
To install and run the Secunia PSI you require administrative privileges.


Connectivity
Access to Secunia's encrypted servers via SSL (https://psi.secunia.com:443/) and access to Microsoft Windows Update servers, see also Software Requirements below

Software Requirements
The latest version of Microsoft Update. You can determine whether or not you are running the latest version by visiting update.microsoft.com with Microsoft Internet Explorer, while logged in as the Administrator. If you are able to check your system for missing updates through this tool, your system should function properly with the Secunia PSI.

Hardware Requirements:
There are no additional hardware requirements. If your computer runs any of the above mentioned Operating Systems, then Secunia PSI should work.

Hope the foregoing is of some help......regards,

@mogs

The programme is indeed on the database here:

http://secunia.com/advisories/product/16207/

My understanding of the question being asked is here:

http://secunia.com/advisories/42093/

Why is it showing as vulnerable on a Windows system in relation to this statement-

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 2.3 running on Linux and Mac.

Not sure what that has got to do with looking at the FAQ U are pointing at.

Thanks Maurice....my fault....hadn't scrolled down the Cisco list far enough ! I'd read the poster's issue wrongly it seems. I can now see what you mean, but can't offer any explanation.
