Hi, i have the latest version of the PSI ,however i have the same problem as with the earlier version,which is;The PSI; DOES'NT detect programs that need updating.

It happened again a few minutes ago,with the Update for JAVA.
The scan came up with nothing,HOWEVER by manually checking the JAVA Update

an Update WAS available.

What to i do?
Thanks!

Depends what those updates are. PSI is a vulnerability checker not a general updater.

Secunia PSI does not report on updates in BETA,bug fixes or cosmetic changes made by a vendor.

Details here (items 6 & 7):

Thanks for the reply.The update was for JAVA (TM)6 Update 30.Would that update qualify as a non-security Update?

It would not appear so: The changelog states this:

Improved performance and stability
* Support for Red Hat Enterprise 6
* Java VisualVM based on VisualVM 1.3.2 is included. This release introduces the following features and enhancements:
- Show CompositeType field descriptions in tooltips
- Tracking (hash)map resize events by Tracer-Collections plugin
* Bug Fixes
- breaks ssl connectivity using TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA

That is clearly cosmetic/bug fix issues.
