This is a question to developers of PSI 2

Is there any chance of getting the program to scan/recognize beta or RC of browsers like Chrome 10/Firefox 4/ IE 9

Are there fundamental difficulties in doing so?

To date PSI has never dealt with Beta Programs and and may show them as insecure. They have just recently caught up with IE9 RC and it is a recognized browser, Go To "Company" tab index "Contact us" for any further reply from Secunia.

Hi ,

Due to constant evolution/revision of Chrome in particular and many/most other Alphas , Betas and RC's and therefore the problem of staying on top of vulnerabilities and changing platforms (Secunia do a detailed check of security problems before distributing a "Secunia Advisory") the PSI will not show them as such .

In the case of Chrome Browser, the PSI displays "Google gears" for all (Stable , Beta , Dev Channel and Canary) versions ; on the "Results" page you see only the gears version number , but if you click the |+] to the left of the display you will see the file path and the version number is displayed therein . If you have Chrome Frame it will also display with it's version number in the gears expanded display .

Silent updates or manual file deletion are usually recorded in real time by the PSI display in a pop up balloon over the PSI tray icon .

Take care

Anthony

Hi mogs

The suggestion from you was most likely empty due to lack of file information (We need for detection)

I've downloaded the Auslogics Disk Defrag ScreenSaver and there is only 1 file that contains "some" file information, which is the uninstaller.

This is not enough for us to be able to add it to our program database.

***[We will in most cases add software suggested to our database daily (not during weekends)

If you have suggested software that is not being detected, try mailing us at support@secunia.com.]***
So, you can submit a program to Secunia
