The ports system now knows how to query that database and dynamically prevents the installation of vulnerable ports. PR: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=62039 >>> Submitted by: eik Now, maybe this could be clarified a little bit in CHANGES ? Like: __ For using the new security feature of ports infrastructure, you should: cd /usr/ports/security/portaudit; make install /usr/local/etc/periodic/daily/330.fetchaudit To test: cd /usr/ports/security/vulnerability-test-port make INSTALLATION_DATE=`date -u -v-14d "+%Y.%m.%d"` install A message like this should appear: ===> vulnerability-test-port-2004.01.14 has known vulnerabilities: >> Not vulnerable, just a test port (database: 2004-01-28). Reference: <http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/security/vulnerability-test-port/> >> Please update your ports tree and try again. *** Error code 1 If you don't install this port, for the majority of make's targtets you will get the following message: ===> Vulnerability check disabled __ IMHO, as this is a log desired feature, a news on annouce@ / security / security-notifications could be send. Now, what is the status of the vulnerabilities database ? -- IOnut Unregistered ;) FreeBSD user _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
