VulnDetect Agent should notify Available Updates
The VulnDetect icon in the System tray should show a notification window telling me:
- Number of available Windows Updates
- Number of available updates with high risk
- Number of available updates with normal (low) risk
- Number of end-of-life applications installed
In this dialog there should be a button "Show Details...".
When the user clicks it, then Open the VulnDetect website from the VulnDetect Agent.
For business users this feature (showing a notification window) should be configurable.
So the administrator can allow of forbid this feature.
If the administrator has disabled this feature, then the administrator gets an email with the scan result (also this is configurable).
This is an essential feature
The user should also be notified when there are new vulnerabilities found or new updates available.
@gregalexandre Right, you described when the notification window should be shown and I described what should be shown in the notification window.
@olli_s You just need to react when:
1/ you need to update;
2/ something goes wrong (with the agent, communication with the server,...).
But I am sure that 2 will never happen :-)!
Thanks for your explanations.
@ted This is just a summary what topics are new here in the forums and not a list of implemented features.
The reason why you see so many postings from me is that I have so many suggestions for VulnDetect (a complete concept) and that I posted them all here.
But I am a normal user like you (that became moderator), I am not an official of SecTeer.
@olli_s But why this email, if it is not implemented yet? Kind confusing isn't?:
No VulnDetect icon in the System Tray either. So, were can I find this?
@gregalexandre And you just need to react then there is a notification telling you that some updates are pending.
@olli_s You shall know when you have something to do, something goes wrong and when all is OK.
I think about a good usability and a good UX (user experience).
It would be very user friendly when VulnDetect is running in the background and the user does not have to care about it (no user-interaction like starting a scan or opening the website for results is required).
Only hen there are updates available the user gets a notification and then opens the website with one button click.
So he is not bothered until there are update available.
And when the login to the website is done automatically, this is more user friendly.
And the planned feature that some applications can be [downloaded / installed with a single mouse click](Download Updates with one click ) increases the usability a lot.
You have some competitors out there, be better and easier than the others!
What you mean is that there should be a notification on the Windows system and not just in the Web UI?
