DESCRIPTION

cpan-audit is a command line application that checks the modules or distributions for known vulnerabilities. It is using its internal database that is automatically generated from a hand-picked database https://github.com/vti/cpan-security-advisory.

cpan-audit does not connect to anything, that is why it is important to keep it up to date. Every update of the internal database is released as a new version.

cpan-audit can automatically detect dependencies from the following sources:

Carton

Parses cpanfile.snapshot file and checks the distribution versions.

cpanfile

Parses cpanfile taking into account the required versions.

It is assumed that if the required version of the module is less than a version of a release with a known vulnerability fix, then the module is considered affected.
