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.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt install snapd

To install CVEScan, simply use the following command:
