I don't know how others feel about this, but I'd be more careful with such cases. Basically this sounds to me like a "we don't know if it is a vulnerability, but it could be". And there I'd say "in doubt be on the safe side". Rate them as "very low impact", don't treat them with any urgency, but I think such issues should be fixed and should be called vulnerabilities nevertheless. -- Hanno Böck http://hboeck.de/ mail/jabber: hanno@...eck.de GPG: BBB51E42 [ CONTENT OF TYPE application/pgp-signature SKIPPED ]
