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.) - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJUGnzrAAoJEKllVAevmvms74MH/2OpvkjxIkmiDEIL4PHt55BU YhmcrKpJjZWB9TdMLAF2V3ZFh8vAOkIALqex7JDzZn994MmOHxXyqSE4NzzQ2Siw XADaGAYCXYE+0fd6zQlNn9XHNX+zt8U4j1GYnjEegoz1FwOE/6GMBp+K9X3Lqvr9 h9DnYWlULD22GaBQn4/YZq6niVe1KTsonB3INxUVO6L0dahY27zM9EikCT1y7XOz ZHoxPom8EzFP6L0Yo/VSz/q+i3EOioRXzLhCcCWQWcPzOl1aRMvzkRvDV4rqtGEz cJuzzrH+m5ghKEkVSNhoL9NlZlICKwE9A3pKCoBtyAF3Yq0/oOyUbBdFs5Cd6kw= =iqNx -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
