Nothing to see
There's is nothing to see, when I using SecTeer Personal Carma.
@nak We believe we found the cause of this issue. The developers have just released a fix:
Please let me know if this fixes it (you only need to wait and see if it runs the inspection at the next "inspectionWindow").
@nak Could you send both your secteer.log files from c:\windows\logs\secteer via email to tom at vulndetect dot com
And can you tell me if the nextInspectionTime corresponds with what you see in the UI?

I'm having the same issue. There appear to be a few issues that I can see:
Looking at "c:\windows\logs\secteer\secteer.log" "nextInspectionTime" is always a day ahead (even when the next inspection is set on the web site). For example, if I set the web site "hour of day to run inspection" to be an hour from now, the web site will display "next inspection time" of "an hour", but the local agent thinks it is 25 hours from now.
(I'm in GMT-7 time zone if that makes a difference).
The other issue is: after a reboot the nextInspectionTime is set to be more than 24 hours away. Here's the logs from today after a reboot (auth tokens and names removed):

The previous nextInspectionTime was
2018-12-20 14:00:00 (local time). So the next inspection time jumped a day.
I believe this happens after a hibernate too, but I don't have the logs to prove it. In my case though it means even though the agent has been installed for weeks, my system never gets inspected unless I leave the system running 24x7.
I think there is a bug in your time arithmetic for setting nextInspectionTime.
@KI108 It appears that only the admin user is notified about post awaiting approval. And we don't usually use the admin account - so we didn't see it. Sorry. I've changed some settings and hope that my "Moderator" user will see it.
But now I will "up vote" your posts, and if someone else also does that, then you can post without approval next time.

I have this same issue. I reported it earlier, but I don't see my post anywhere.
Log shows same message every 3 minutes

@vulndetect Hi Tom,
@ted It's fine, we'll try to sort it out, soon.
@vulndetect Hi Tom,
To be honest with you, I don't know that for sure if it came in a bundle with CS6. I know if I uninstall QuickTime there are some errors using PS/LR.
There are a lot of file extensions using QuickTime associated with CS6. So, this isn't an option to uninstall.
@gregalexandre Did you approve the agent in the "Configuration" at https://carma.secteer.com/personal-carma/#/configuration
I just ran my agent, and it got the expected response. Let me know and perhaps you can send me the full log tomorrow to tom [at] @vulndetect dot com

I have same issue.
I have an "access denied" to server (translation from french sentence) in the secteer.log

That is interesting.
What I would like to know is if QuickTime is associated with any extensions and if it is installed as a plugin in any browser.
If it isn't, then we need to find a way to exclude it from the scan result.
But if it is an independent application that is installed like in the old days, then we have to detect it and recommend that it is uninstalled.
It is a bit like Java, which often is bundled with other applications, but can't be activated via file associations and via browsers, in which case the attack vectors are limited or non-existent.
I knew it had to do with Adobe, that's why I didn't uninstall it yet.
@vulndetect I know and I don't rely on it for now. I have to uninstall QuickTime yet.
Thanks for reminding me.
@ted The rule production will being improved next week. Do not rely 100% on the current result.
However, your QuickTime is really EoL and ought to be uninstalled.
All safe, only QuickTime is Unknown.
@ted It appears that it missed the Inspection window. Beware that the "Hour of day" may not correspond to your timezone. I have seen this in one other case. Adjust until you see "in an hour" for "Next Inspection".
This is something we are working actively with and will adjust so it is more user friendly.
@tom OK, then we wait. Thanks.
