PKG-AUDIT(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  PKG-AUDIT(8)

NAME
     pkg audit -- Audits installed packages against known vulnerabilities.

SYNOPSIS
     pkg audit [-Fqc] pkg-name

DESCRIPTION
     pkg audit checks installed	packages for known vulnerabilities and gener-
     ates reports including references to security advisories.	Its intended
     audience is system	administrators and individual users.

     pkg audit uses a database maintained by port committers and the FreeBSD
     security team to check if security	advisories for any installed packages
     exist.  Note that a current ports tree (or	any local copy of the ports
     tree) is not required for operation.

     The URL that is used to fetch the database	can be overridden via the VUL-
     NXML_SITE config variable or by PORTAUDIT_SITE if you still use the com-
     pact audit	file.  See pkg.conf(5) for more	information.

     If	you have a vulnerable package installed, you are advised to update or
     deinstall it immediately.

     Supplying a pkg-name will audit only that package.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg	audit:

     -F	 Fetch the database before checking.

     -q	 Be ``quiet''.	Prints only the	requested information without display-
	 ing many hints.

     -c	 Use the prepared audit	file instead of	vunlxml.  Database is fetched
	 according to PORTAUDIT_SITE config variable.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect	the execution of pkg audit.
     See pkg.conf(5) for further description.

     PKG_DBDIR

     PORTAUDIT_SITE

     VULNXML_SITE
