Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The question I'm referring to is this one.

While disabling everything but main and restricted is do-able to get for sure up to date packages...I think more people might jump in if there was a bug-need-squashing tracker that was more generally - package needs update for CVE-X.

This would be sort of like the FreeBSD portaudit

So the meat of the question: Does something like this exist?

I'm not sure if that is want you want, but the Advanced Search on bugs.launchpad.net lets you select "Show only bugs associated with a CVE" in the "Bug relationships" section.

Helpful, but not automated. Still got an upvote. –  hbdgaf Apr 5 '12 at 21:13
    
Thanks again, this at least gives me something to start scripting with. –  hbdgaf Apr 8 '12 at 19:10
