Subject: Re: MITRE is adding data intake to its CVE ID process

Same concern here; I second your suggestion, John.

By the way, I have just tried the OVE ID alternative:
good idea, but perhaps one button is a bit too frugal.
What about adding at least the possibility of a title?
This would probably encourage people to use OVEs.
Of course, a catpcha might be needed in that event.


P.S.: While we're at it, let's use the two OVEs I have just wasted,
OVE-20170210-0001 (forward CVE web request+ID to oss-sec)
OVE-20170210-0002 (add a title option field to OVE web form),
for the two aforementioned issues!

I'm glad someone else mentioned this -- I've been wondering too.

What would be nice is if the web form forwarded the request and CVE-ID
(suitably formatted) to oss-security or a similar list.
