I had that Secunia program on my PC, but deleted it as I figured I would just use the online scan.

After reading your post, I think the online is not as effective. It must only update when a patch is released. (I just checked and it still shows OK)

I found this in their FAQ
Quote:
Secunia Research develops new detection rules every time a vendor releases a security patch for any vulnerability in a product detected by the Secunia PSI. For example, new detection rules are created after every Microsoft Tuesday patch cycle, as this allows the Secunia PSI to check if your Windows systems patches are up to date or not.
Why it is different for the desktop version, I do not know.

The desktop version also showed MPC as end of life for me.

Thanks for the update. I am going to re-download the desktop version.
