I was under impression that having a CVE ID speeds up processes in distros, and fixes are released quicker. That's why for my previous (and first ever) vulnerability I first got an ID and only then released the details and the patch. The assignment took just a day. Was my impression wrong? I just want to do things "right", so that attackers have as little time as possible to exploit users. (I do realize this all is best-effort and distros might still take time to release, and then users might take ages to upgrade.) Now that I had an experience of waiting for three weeks, I'll also re-consider if I want to become a CNA for my project. Previously it seemed like a hassle; I'm not so sure now. -- Regards, Alexander Batischev PGP key 356961A20C8BFD03 Fingerprint: CE6C 4307 9348 58E3 FD94 A00F 3569 61A2 0C8B FD03 [ CONTENT OF TYPE application/pgp-signature SKIPPED ]
