(:CLP) Great. Comodo’s Secunia Project. ;D Thank you !

Tested - Working great ! No vulnerabilities found :BNC

Great tool, keep up the good work guys :BNC (:CLP)


I have the Secunia psi installed also.

This Vulnerability scanner says that I have the following vulnerable programs:

Adobe reader 8.1.2

Java runtime

Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180

Internet Explorer 7.00.5730.11(061017-1135)

Also the same Java version again.

Secunia says I have no unpatched programs installed.

Bugs so far:

  • Crashed itself and Firefox

  • When clicking Product URL or Update Information I get this error message:

Running Windows XP 32-bit SP 2 on an AMD Athlon XP Thorton 2400+.

Else, it seems like a promising product!


This is the latest, so that should be a false positive…

…and this is not the latest, now there is

(I’m an update freak ;))



I also use Secunia PSI, and this tool seems to complement Secunia’s perfectly. CVA is warning me about Java (I will update to .6) Google Toolbar and Adobe Reader. None of them warned by PSI.

BTW, when I click Java vulnerability it shows 14 different warnings, first 03 october 2007 . Is that history information of the Java runtime? Because I think is newer than that.

I would like to have a list of all the programs analyzed, not only the vulnerable ones. Now I can’t see the option to check all the program CVA has checked.

And what about the updates? Will the database of the vulnerabilities be updated automatically or only the CVA updates when updates option is selected in Settings tab?

So far, just one crash when trying to update manually.

Thanks for this great product!

P.D. Have you seen todays Secunia advisory about CFP 2.4?

2.4 is no longer supported

Sort of… vulnerability only for Linux version… (Reader 8.1.2)

I think you confuse “unpatched” with “vulnerable”.

thank you for your feedback so far everyone…
pls keep them coming to make this best possible!!!

thank you


There does appear to be false positives:
It states I have a vulnerable IE 6 (no need for funny remarks here (:TNG)) and links to for the solution, but I already have KB942615 installed.

uTorrent 1.7.7 has an update? Excluding the 1.8 beta, this is untrue as the one I have is the last final version already.

MS PowerPoint 2003 is indeed vulnerable (I already knew that), but the url solution references the download site for – MS PowerPoint 2003, which isn’t a solution by itself, but I guess it is the only official site with info from MS.

I wonder why there are 2 instances of my Windows Media Player 10 (one in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player and the other in C:\WINDOWS\RegisteredPackages{DD90D410-1823-43EB-9A16-A2331BF08799}).

There’s no close button for the info screen, just the X at the top-right corner.

Other than those to comment, I like this tool. It literally took 3 seconds to scan my computer (:CLP).

I have only just found the vulnerability details, as the bottom section needed scrolling to show that.

It was rather confusing because of that, but now all is revealed.

Now I’ve also tried this nice little tool.

Here’s a complete list of all my programs (on Windows XP SP3):

Adobe Reader Lite
Internet Explorer
Media Player Classic
Mozilla Firefox
NT Registry Optimizer
PDF Split and Merge

  • Java Runtime Environment and many codecs.

Everything is the very latest version (not referring to CVA here, but my own control of the system), except for Internet Explorer which is version 6. The result of the scan was the same FP as JamesFrance received: Adobe Reader. Other than that, no warnings, not even for IE 6.



Neat tool - no crashes so far.

I’d like to see the vulnerability rating shown on the main screen. Admittedly this means it would have to do a look at up the time of detection, but the user is then presented with all the pertinent info he needs to determine his next action, all in one place (i.e. what is wrong and how wrong it is).

+1. No crash = :slight_smile: user

+1. Less clicks = :slight_smile: user

I think I have several false positives. See attached photo.

  1. Windows media player - I have v-11 not 10
  2. Two instances of Java runtime - I have the latest according to java update. I know LA said there was but I coudn’t find it.
  3. I have IE-7 not 6
  4. I have the update already that is recommended for IE7 - KB928090
  5. I have Net framework 1.1 and its SP1 and updates.

I’ve exactly the same as you except WMP which I don’t have at all (not installed).

The solution for Net Framework 1.1 is referring to a website for Windows XP, while I’m running Vista.

The installer gave a warning that the .exe is not compatible with the Windows version I’m running.

Also, I’m still running Office 2003… the updater brings me to a website which promotes Office 2007… :slight_smile:

Otherwise, nice piece of software!


Great News! I’ll have to install it when I get home later. I’ve been looking for just such a program ever since I had issues with BigFix a couple of years ago.
