Not specifically weekly.  There's a *daily* security check on installed
ports if you install ports-mgmt/portaudit

If you really want a weekly rather than a daily report, you could adapt
${LOCALBASE}/etc/periodic/security/410.portaudit into
${LOCALBASE}/etc/periodic/weekly/410.portaudit pretty easily.
