I've insalled the package debsecan in debian wheezy with 3.7.1 kernel. when I try to run it it gives me this output:
error: while downloading http://secure-testing.debian.net/debian-secure-testing/project/debsecan/release/1/GENERIC: error: [Errno -2] Name or service not known
I tried this: adding repositories in /etc/apt/source.list apt-get upgrade apt-get update
But still the same result. I'd like to be able to track down what packages I have on my debian machine and which among them are vulnerable/to be removed. My goal is system minimization to harden it.
Any help ?
[EDIT] Here's the output of cat /etc/default/debsecan:
