Advisory Check is a program that reads security advisories for you. It gathers security advisories using RSS, RDF, or XML feeds, compares them against the installed software, and alerts you if you're vulnerable. A wide variety of package managers can be queried to detect installed software. Remote systems can be monitored by using the integrated SSH, Windows-RPC, and Nmap support.

CGI::SHTML is a perl module for parsing Apache SSI directives within a CGI script, without going through Apache itself. It was specifically designed to operate like start_html() and end_html() within CGI.pm while including the same SSI headers and footers that the main Web site parses. While it is not ready for deployment on large production Web sites, it has served well for several years on a mid-sized academic site.
