Show updates for Drivers
VulnDetect should also scan for installed drives and also offer updates for these drivers.
Up-to-date drivers increase the security of the system a lot (did someone say "Spectre/Meltdown" here?).
In the Configuration you should add a checkbox "Show updates for Drivers" at the new section Scan options (this section is needed for other suggestions).
This checkbox is checked by default.
Updates for drivers is a very important feature!
Where users can go to any app website and download and install a new version, for drivers this is a bit more complicated.
Users have to search for the correct driver (correct hardware, correct OS, correct version like x64 or x32).
Even I have problems doing this (so I don't investigate the time) and I would estimate my skills to quiet well.
Next driver updates increase the stability of the system, increase the security and also offer new features.
So in my opinion a driver scan is a very important feature!
Some of the files Sumo discovers are drivers. While having VulnDetect discover drivers might be nice in the future, I think a focus on programs in the near term should be the priority

Update of drivers is requested: closest to ring 0. Having this as an option is very optional !
