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

NAME
     pkg audit -- audit	installed packages against known vulnerabilities

SYNOPSIS
     pkg audit [-Fqr] [-f filename] pkg-name

     pkg audit [--{fetch,quiet,recursive}] [--file filename] 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.	 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	filename, --file filename
	    Use	filename as the	local copy of the vulnerability	database.  If
	    used in combination	with -F	download the vulnerability database to
	    the	named filename before auditing installed ports against it.

     -F, --fetch
	    Fetch the database before checking.

     -q, --quiet
	    Be ``quiet''.  Prints only the requested information without dis-
	    playing many hints.

     -r, --recursive
	    Prints packages that depend	on vulnerable packages and are thus
	    potentially	vulnerable as well.

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

     PKG_DBDIR

     VULNXML_SITE

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
