Description Neal Gompa 2015-10-26 00:10:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Yum today has integrated functionality for being able to check and apply updates related to advisories, bodhi updates, and CVEs. This functionality is used somewhat often in Fedora (it's mentioned in the Common Bugs for upgrades as a way to fix certain bugs, as seen on the F23 common bugs page[0]) and is a generally useful feature anyway.

This functionality should be brought over to DNF, as it is quite useful for ensuring that a system is verifiably secure.
