I used this link to download Secunia: https://www.flexerasoftware.com/enterprise/products/software-vulnerability-management/personal-software-inspector/


After installing it, this showed up:

Microsoft Update is not installed
Some missing updates cannot be detected without Microsoft Update
Please click the button below to open the Microsoft Update site and follow the instructions to install Microsoft Update
Install Microsoft Update


After clicking the install button, it said:

Microsoft updates requires Internet Explorer

Open Internet Explorer to update?



I clicked ok.


Then this showed up:


There is a problem with this website’s security certificate.        
It has a weak signature, so your connection isn’t secure.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.


After copy/pasting the link in firefox, I got another warning that the security is weak.


Is there risk involved? And do I need to install Microsoft update? And how do I do that now with this error?
