    "Handy and free"

    August 31, 2009  |   By Rob10

    Pros

    Makes keeping important programs up to date and secure, automatically. Easy interface.

    Cons

    Sometimes keeps listing a program as insecure after it's been updated

    Summary

    As hackers find security holes in so many programs these days, it's nice to have Secunia watching your back. I don't always remember to check if I have the latest (secure) versions of programs and Secunia does it for me, and provides a simple way to download what ever patches are needed from the individual program's website. Lately, however, it seems to be telling my versions of Microsoft Word, Outlook, and Excel are all "insecure" when Microsoft Update says there is no updates, while the same versions of these are NOT flagged on my laptop. I'm going to uninstall/reinstall Secunia and see if that helps.
