I just went to Secunia and attempted to do what you did.

Couldn't find a link about "secure browsing".

Can you post it so I can compare my results to yours?

I did run their online scanner and got the expected results.

Ok; I just downloaded "PSISetup.exe" and will install and run it.

Is that what you downloaded?

I just ran it.

I don't see a tab in my case about "Secure Browsing" like you do.

My scan found only 1 "insecure"---Thunderbird. My version is quite old and I'm not going to update it.

Notice that my Adobe Flash Player 11 is patched and OK, unlike yours.

My Internet Explorer 8 is also patched and OK, even though I don't use IE.

My Sun Java 6 is patched and OK.

VLC is not installed on my system.

Have you attempted to patch Sun Java, Adobe Flash, and IE?

go into configuration, then settings then tick enable secure browsing. As far as I knew I was up to date. Maybe I dont understand patch.

OK, I enabled Secure Browsing. Below are the results. Pretty much like yours.

I have no idea why it says my Java, Flash, and IE or OK in the first scan and unpatched in the second.

I'm not going to worry about it.

All I can suggest is to ask at Secunia's own forums.
