Who is your downstream vendor?

Note that Secunia is sometimes quite sloppy in their advisory
research.  For example I have been told I lack a Silverlight
update, when I have skipped an unrelated update to a different
part of Windows, which just happened to be released on the same
day as that Silverlight update.  This was via a third party
scanner who had purchased their advisory and detection data
from Secunia.
