Disable periodic security check for vulnerable packages

This is because the periodic script in question was added when pkg was
installed, it is not part of the base system. As such the script is in
/usr/local/etc/periodic/security rather than /etc/periodic/security. Any
program can add periodic scripts, for instance smartmontools adds a
periodic script to /usr/local/etc/periodic/daily.
