They never stated that they are perfect, if people belief there is such a
thing as perfect, they need to wake up :D

Secunia actually encourages people to report incorrect detections.

I quote:

Additionally, it is important to understand that the process of identifying insecure software installations on any system involves many different factors and, in rare cases, may result in incorrect detections. Should you encounter such a situation, please send us your feedback and all relevant information at support@secunia.com.


Cut from. Purpose of the Secunia PSI

At the moment there isn't a lot of other options out there regarding
this kind of program. So my approach to such things, is that some is
better than nothing. B)

Thank you Abydos, I have already reported my concerns as requested.

The reason for posting my thread was to draw attention so new members or anyone else for that matter would not rely on Secunia 100%. As you so rightly stated, indeed there is nothing perfect in this world.

Best regards,

You're welcome :)

And rightly so, people should be made aware of the facts and pitfalls
on the big wide internet. So good job on the pointer :thumbup:
