    Question Secunia security scan.

    i ran a secunia security scan to see if my comp had any irregular patches to fix..it found 2 potentials





    i ask you, should i trust secunia enough to download and update both programs -seeing the current versions could be unstable and harmful to system?

    Yes, you can trust Secunia.
    Even if I thnk it's better to install Flash Player 10 or get the patch for Flash Player 9 directly from adobe.
    Also SUN Java you are using is not the last one which fixes many vulnerabilities.

    You are getting security waring because you are running old version of Adobe Flash.The present one 10.If you are using old versions just update it to the latest version.You can believe Secunia and install latest updates.

    Microsoft will tell patch only Windows and other MS products.

    Secunia is a good and trusted program to find out which of your other software is outdated/unsecure/needs to be patched.

    You should also give Secunia's Personal Software Inspector a try. It is a program for your Windows. It has a much much larger application support. Will provide you with the direct link to download the app too.

    Although i appreciate your security concern, but having more security programs than necessary won't provide you with extra security. Rather, it will hamper and come in the way of you using your computer properly.

    Having One AV and One Anti Spyware is more than enough.

    What 2 other programs have you got installed?

    And Secunia PSI is not a security program, it just scans your programs to see which programs have not been updated to the latest versions.
