Security patch Debian server

Hey there!

Today I will tell you a very simple guide to apply security patches to your Debian system.

So first, we may want to see the updates available:

apt-get -s dist-upgrade |grep "^Inst" |grep -i securi

Now, to apply those, just run:

apt-get -s dist-upgrade | grep "^Inst" | grep -i securi | awk -F " " {'print $2'} | xargs apt-get install

Cool, isn’t it?


Have a good day!
