Allow to ignore Updates and Apps


  • Community Moderator

    Some applications offer only minor versions for free (for example from 15.0 to 15.1) but for major version updates (from 15.0 to 16.0) you have to buy the new version/pay for the major update.
    For example "Adobe Photoshop Elements", "Adobe Premiere Elements" or "Microsoft Office" (not Office 365).

    It would be cool when I could tell VulnDetect to:

    • Ignore this application (don't notify my about updates for this application)
      You should show a warning when this option is selected.
    • Ignore this version (when I ignore 15.0 then the updates to 15.1 and 16.0 are shown)
    • Ignore this major version (all updates of 16.x are ignored but updates for 15.x are reported)

    VulnDetect should also remember what version was installed when I ignore an update.
    If I have for example 15.0 installed and select to ignore the major version 16.0 then I would love to be informed about updates for 16.x after I have bought 16.0.
