Are you sure this is within the scope of Software management? I'd say that the 
line is exactly between the existing and requested solution. The existing 
solution is within our scope (there is a security update) while the requested 
is more of an independent tool taking information from any place there is for 
this sort of information (there has been a security risk reported at XXX, take 
a look).
