The recommended upgrade is for a beta version that SourceForge does not yet consider final. They recommend the latest stable version on their site - why do you say that it is insecure/end-of-life?

I have v1.2.6 of Audacity installed but PSI reports it as v1.3.4. I even tried installing the latest beta, 1.3.7, but PSI still wasn't happy.

Very odd. PSI does not normally report on Beta or Release Candidate (RC)updates.

The latest stable version is 1.2.6.

Version 1.3.4 is Beta and version 1.3.7 is RC2.
Details are here:

I would email Secunia Support (support@secunia.com)with your problem.

Hi

Normally Secunia does not detect beta software, but we felt we had to do an exception this time.

Audacity 1.2.x does simply not have any information we can use to detect it.

The 1.3.x versions do however have these information and we decided to detect them since there is some insecurities in some of them.
