Hello angrig,

It would be helpful when posting to the forum to at least include details of what OS you are running and the version of PSI you are running on your computer.

Example: I am running XP Home SP3, PSI v. 3.0.0.3001.

You can get version information for Secunia by right-clicking the Secunia icon in the system tray and clicking About.

I am assuming you are getting this information from the Secure Browsing link within Secunia.

Hi ,

IE8 is subject to Secunia Advisories which show minor , no solution/unpatched vulnerabilities ; here is the full Secunia listing (scroll down):-

http://secunia.com/advisories/product/21625/?task=...

So IE8 is shown as "unsafe for browsing" in the PSI "secure browsing" module .

Whatever the listing , no Browser is 100% safe ; always use safe browsing rules .

Take care

Anthony
