I was just at Secunia's site and their was an announcement that they had been purchased.

There is mention of a time will come when it will no longer be sold or supported but no exact dates were given at this time that I saw.

 

May be Grinler may be able to find out more.

I know this is a well respected and advised to use program on here.

The name of the company that is acquiring Secunia is Flexera. Here's the press release.

Secunia seems to fit well with Flexera's current product except that Secunia is mainly designed for the home user and Flexera designs their products for Enterprise. I expect Secunia's product to be expanded accordingly.

My bad I miss spelled it.  Thanks for posting the actual link, I didn't think of that would have saved some confusion.
