The Secunia PSI detects installed software on your computer and categorises it as either Insecure, End-of-Life, or Up-To-Date. Effectively enabling you to focus your attention on software installations where more secure versions are available from the vendors.

How does the Secunia PSI work

The Secunia PSI works by examining files on your computer (primarily .exe, .dll, and .ocx files). These files contain non-specific meta information provided by the software vendor only. This data is the same for all users, and originates from the installed programs on your computer - never from their configuration. Please read the privacy statement available at the bottom of this page and through the Secunia PSI application for more details about how information from your computer is used by Secunia.

After examining all the files on your local hard drive(s), the collected data is sent to Secunia's servers, which match the data against the Secunia File Signatures engine (https://psi.secunia.com/) to determine the exact applications installed on your system.

This information can then be used to provide you with a detailed report of the missing security related updates for your system.

System Requirements:

The current list of requirements that must be met for the Secunia PSI to function correctly are the following:

Supported Operating Systems:
* Microsoft Windows XP - Service Pack 2
* Microsoft Windows 2003
* Microsoft Windows 2000 - Service Pack 4
* US and European languages only
* Learn more
