Check how many security updates are available on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

/usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check --human-readable | grep -i security

This can be added to a cron job or via your favorite notification method. It's part of the MOTD when you first log in, but if you are like me, you do not log out that often, so it comes in handy.
