Audit Packages

Whereas FreeBSD and OpenBSD use VuXML to manage security vulnerabilities in their ports collections, NetBSD maintains its own vulnerability list for its pkgsrc collection. The list is available atftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/distfiles/pkg-vulnerabilities. Just as you can install portaudit on a FreeBSD system, you can install audit-packages on a NetBSD system. The audit-packages script will compare the vulnerabilities list to the installed software and advise you about any outstanding vulnerabilities that affect the software on that system.
