Not really a “Web Development” topic but it’s an important SW issue.

Anyone have experience with OTHER personal software security updaters?

GHacks has this set of links for research, but I wanted to know if anyone else had something to say.

Is this like Windows Automatic Updates?

Yes, but for things not Microsoft. It keeps a DB or a set of pointers to external programs, and periodically looks at what you have installed vs what’s out there and may either update it or tell you there’s an update.

So I’m guessing you don’t use one?


#4

nah I’ve never used one

Does it inform you of porn updates? (Asking for a Canadian friend)
