Security/CVE vulnerability monitoring for Ubuntu

CVEScan analyzes an Ubuntu system to check whether all available security patches have been installed. CVEScan produces a clear, concise report that tells you which, if any, security patches an Ubuntu system may be missing.

In addition to scanning a local system, CVEScan can scan a package manifest file. This is useful in environments where CVEScan cannot be installed on every system.

Installation -> sudo snap install cvescan Usage Information -> cvescan -h
