The Secunia PSI protects against software vulnerabilities.
358,999 users have already installed the Secunia PSI and 29,848,147 user applications are currently monitored. The Secunia PSI is the FREE security tool that is designed with the sole purpose of helping you secure your computer from software vulnerabilities. Software vulnerabilities affect all applications installed on your computer, from the Operating System down to your email client, office application, instant messaging, and so on.

What are software vulnerabilities?
A software vulnerability is basically a programming error/flaw in a software application, that can be used by a hacker to perform actions, which have a security impact on your computer. These actions range from disclosure of sensitive information stored on your computer (like credit card numbers and account information) to automatic installation of viruses, trojans, keyloggers, or other code.

Why is this a risk to you?
An example: When you browse the Internet, you use an "Internet browser" this may be: Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Opera. All of these browsers have been affected by software vulnerabilities that have allowed hackers to do practically anything on your computer - all you had to do was to visit a website and the website could take control of your computer. The same goes for each and every other application on your computer - unless you keep them updated and patched. Programs such as anti-virus, personal firewall, and anti-spyware are good measures of protection, but they will NOT protect you from the threat of software vulnerabilities - despite what many of them promise!

How can you protect yourself from software vulnerabilities?
You simply need to keep your software updated. The only real solution, to avoid becoming a victim of a hacker exploiting software vulnerabilities, is to install the latest security updates that the software vendors release. In other words, make sure that you always have the latest secure versions of the software that you have installed on your computer.
