Secunia has shipped a new version of its highly rated Personal Security Inspector (PSI) utility to offer automated patching for Windows users.

A beta version of the new Secunia PSI 3.0 was released at the RSA Security conference here with a new component called  Secunia Package System (SPS) that promised to remove the dependence on vendors to provide silent, automatic updates when security patches are released for software vulnerabilities.

thanks keyboardNinja, I love love the Secunia PSI app. Learned about from quietman7 and I know Grinler thinks everyone should do it.

With regards to the comments posted at the zdnet website, I was thinking the same thing; will the new version give me an option to opt-out of any updates I don't want?

I love how the app lets me know what is out of date or at end-of-life but I prefer to manage what goes into my computers, not to have it decided for me.

Anyone run the new version yet?

Would love to get some feedback before I update.
