I know that there are some simple apps, like script blockers, which have a limited range to protect, which may not need to be updated, except maybe gui changes for aesthetic reasons.
Port Explorer is apparently not being updated, except once, the new port and domain databases, but this is probably automatic. The program itself does not appear to be maintained and updated, so any exploits in it are not corrected.
The specific question: Is it safe to continue using Port Explorer? I have a license and I like it, but not if it opens my system to danger.
The general principle: Is it safe to use unsupported programs, ones not updated to correct defects in them?
I apologize if this is in the wrong forum.
