The right CVE for the gksu bug is CVE-2014-2886.

(The right CVE for the Cobham Aviator PIN algorithm issue, also
formerly known as CVE-2014-2943, is now CVE-2014-2942. The MITRE
CVE web site and NVD web site will have these changes in the
coming days. The entry currently at
https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2943
will be replaced with an explanation of the two correct CVE IDs.)
