Nagios plugin to monitor vulnerable and/or obsolete packages installed on a FreeBSD system.
This plugin uses the built-in 'pkg' or the port installed 'pkg' utility on your FreeBSD system. This plugin will scan your system for vulnerable packages or obsolete packages - and display appropriate warnings to Nagios.

Usage: check_portaudit (security/updates) (show/hide) [database age limit (days)]
Example: check_portaudit security show 3

COMMANDS
security - displays vulnerable packages.
updates - lists packages which need updating.

You can choose whether to show or not show vulnerable/old packages by name. The message line may be incredibly huge if you have a lot of old/vulnerable packages, so using "noshow" you are guaranteed a single line of text.

DISPLAY
show - shows all packages by name when vulnerable/obsolete packages detected
noshow - do not show package names. Simply display number of packages detected

DATABASE AGE LIMIT
The database age limit option will produce CRITICAL errors by default if either the portaudit database or the ports tree is older than a certain number of days. If this argument is not specified, the default will be 7 days.

WARNINGS will be delivered should old/vulnerable packages be discovered otherwise you will get an OK result.
