This plugin checks if there are debian updates available. If so, it issues a warning, if the packages are from security it raises a critical.
This plugin doesn't update the apt database, you're supposed to have a cron line that already does an apt-get update.

nagios servername=NOPASSWD:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_debian_packages
