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

     pkg audit - audit installed packages against known vulnerabilities

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

     pkg audit [--{fetch,quiet,recursive}] [--file filename] pkg-name

     pkg audit checks installed packages for known vulnerabilities and
     generates 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
     VULNXML_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.

     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
            displaying many hints.

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

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