I have a Windows 7 with installed WinSCP 4.2.8.
It was never Auto-Updated to 4.2.9 or 4.3.x.
Now I discovered myself that 4.3.4 is Up-To-Date Version of WinSCP and installed it.
The offered version 404 in the Download Link is way too old IMHO.

Program Name:
WinSCP 4.x

Please refer to this advisory:

As the advisory shows, the latest secure version is 4.0.4. All of the versions you listed are newer than those.

On a related note, we do have auto-updates (silent install) for WinSCP.

The PSI is not a general update checker, but a security patch checker. If the update is not security-related, the PSI will not attempt to install or offer it.

hope this helps.
