Checks your Installed Software for Security – Download Personal Software Inspector (PSI)

The Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) is a free  security tool designed with the sole purpose of helping you secure your computer against threats.

The Secunia PSI, the free security scanning tool for private use, removes the inconvenience from home endpoint security. The Secunia PSI’s unique security scanner automatically scans your PC and alerts you whenever your installed programs and plug-ins require updating. It even patches them for you or, if a patch hasn’t been issued by the vendor, recommends the best course of action.

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting private PCs (endpoints). Their entry points are vulnerabilities (certain code errors or bugs) in popular third party programs, which are exploited and used as a gateway to compromise PCs and access confidential data such as passwords, online profiles, and bank details. Attacks exploiting vulnerable programs and plug-ins are rarely blocked by traditional anti-virus.
