    Default Minimal security threat detected by secunia

    in image here you see there is a security patch that needs to be filled. however, after checking windows update, there seems to be no new security update to be downloaded. the secunia forum mentioned something about false claim to this.. hmmmm

    Scan with Kaspersky free scanner or SuperAntiSpyware. Then you know where you are.

    if you are worried try looking at Computerworld - News, Education & Headlines - Security, Storage & Networking - Information on Hardware, Software for Laptops & Desktops they have a very good uptodate security information section there along with the latest news items.

    thx seti i read the article. as for security threat, its false as the forum mentioned. so next time it happens again, ill be sure to check secunia forum to see if the threat is true or not.

    Secunia does not check for virus or spyware threats. It checks for out of date programs since 99% of program updates these days are to fix security flaws, it is good to keep things up to date.

    In this case it sounds like it was giving a false reading of Vista needing a security update.
