I happened to be in a situation where I am in charge for 100+ systems on top of my job as a programmer. Everything we run is Linux (Debian, Ubuntu, Centos) and gladly our sysadmin set everything with chef, so security patches can be applied quickly.

I would like to know how can I follow newly discovered vulnerabilities spending least amount of time.

As a programmer I am a fan of Gemnasium, which does this kind of job for ruby gems I use in my projects.
