Secunia PSI Version 1.5.0.0 (24th June 2009)

The Secunia PSI 1.5 is a major release, which includes many new features, improvements, and changes that significantly improve the Secunia PSI. We recommend all Secunia PSI users to upgrade. Please read the full changelog for all new features and improvements in Secunia PSI 1.5.

Essential security starts with keeping your programs updated and plugging the holes used by criminals and malware, for years the best security offered to private users has been anti-virus programs and personal firewalls.

The Secunia PSI helps users plug all the security holes on their machine. A new feature in the Secunia PSI also advise the users about holes in browsers and the plug-ins used by the browsers. The Secure Browsing feature has been beta tested for a month, and the users are very positive about how it helps them stay secure and feel more comfortable and safe when they surf the net.

While anti-virus will detect many known attacks, they largely fail to detect new attacks, in particular attacks exploiting known security holes in software. By plugging the holes in your software you effectively thwart all these known attacks which criminals create using sophisticated exploit toolkits.

Thomas Kristensen, Secunia CTO, says; “Essential PC-security starts with updating your software and acting responsibly on the Internet, at this point no other solutions than the Secunia PSI helps the users updating third party software, Microsoft offers a similar solution but it only covers software from Microsoft.”.

Going local
As part of Secunias commitment to help private users secure their systems, free-of-charge, we have asked the community to help translate the Secunia PSI into as many languages as possible. As of today the Secunia PSI is available in 16 languages and an additional 10 is currently being translated.
