How long can this be experted to take, on say, a 2007 laptop? And with 500 ports installed? Thank you.

@Rianav Not long.

portaudit checks the database of installed packages/ports against a list of known to be vulnerable ports. It doesn’t necessarily have to check every file every port installs every time its run. On a VM I have running right now, it took about 2 seconds to report anything back. It has appx 300 ports installed.
