Why does secunia REQUIRE an internet connection?

I DO NOT want my internet connection open except when *I* want it open.

Hello.
Here'a note from the FAQ's.....if you intend using psi, it may be worth you reading thro' and bookmarking for reference :-
Can I use the Secunia PSI even when I'm not connected to the Internet?
The Secunia PSI is able to identify what software you have installed by matching the file information of scanned files to the Secunia Database.

To check which programs may be vulnerable and which ones aren't, it uploads the information from your computer to the Secunia server. Because of these dependencies, you cannot use the Secunia PSI offline, as it requires an Internet connection to both identify the software and give you the results.

If the issue is now resolved ; as you are the originator of the thread, you have the option to close it, by selecting ACCEPT. This will lock the thread : preventing tag-on posts and reminder e mails..........good luck.......regards,
