Would it be appropriate a system vulnerability scanner tool?
To check the operating system update and main programs or other software known vulnerabilities.
Bitdefender has one, and I certainly found the Windows Update tool useful. Have you suggested it via the Beta program team?
Yes, I did.
But I was curious to know the opinions of other users.
Currently F-Secure beta shows simple. I think it can only be added useful tools.
Vipre has one too, works very well but useless if you're a reasonably aware user
I think not only operating system updates would be covered by such a tool. But rather other helpful programs like Java, Adobe, Flash Player...
Could be included in search various software vulnerabilities, that are known at a time.
Perhaps as an independent scanner in scanning options menu.
There is already a program that monitors updates for Java, Adobe, Flash Player, etc, and that is Secunia PSI.
I appreciate F-Secure because it's cleverly strealined, it does not look like a swissknife as some others do.
