Security Errata/Patches

How can I tell what fixes or patches have been applied to a Linux server? In a Windows environment using the control panel to access the add/remove programs tool will allow a person to show windows updates. Can something similar be done in the Linux environment?

Look at the /var/log directory like /var/log/dpkg.log or /var/log/aptitude.log .
