Hi,

Well, if Secunia would state it doesn't know about current versions, I could live with it.
In this case it states that v2.21 is up to date. Well, the current version is 2.51!!!
Okay, this program is not a security risk, indeed. But Secunia PSI is, if it tells me my programs are up to date and they are not!
Shall I uninstall Secunia PSI?
Is there more information about such errors?

Regards

Hello.
Secunia is not a general updater....it,(Secunia) informs you of security threats/vulnerabilities.
Updates that are for bug fixes/cosmetic enhancement...that don't make a program any more secure.... are not included.
Regards,

Thank you for this explanation. I understand.
But the other way round, Secunia notified me of an update for Free Download Manager, while the program itself did not (3.0 Build 848 to Build 852). So I guess it was not so relevant.

@bege1

The Secunia Advisory shows FDM 3.x as secure, if all patches have been applied :-
