Default Are there any other free programs like/better than Secunia PSI?

I love secunia PSI, because it automatically updates programs with security vuneralbility updates/patches- even ones which don't notify users about updates/patches or that there are security holes at all.

Are there other, free + similar, programs out there? I kind of just stumbled upon secunia psi, that's my reason for asking if anyone knows

I don't think Update Checker does anything remotely similar to Secunia PSI. Looks like Update Checker is exclusively for software upgrades, while Secunia is exclusively for security.

I've never heard of anything better than Secunia PSI. (Disclaimer: I'm also a satisfied customer...)
Yes, I'm going crazy, but at least I'm not going alone...
