Subject: CVE request -- bibtex, pam_ssh

Hello Steve,

  could you allocate new CVE ids for the following two issues:

1, bibtex invalid reads/writes when parsing big *.bib file
          (valgrind reports suspicious behavior)
   References:  (texlive-base-bin) (tetex, texlive)

   The problem is in bibtex, but looks like it is shipped
   in various packages for various vendors.

2, pam_ssh Password prompt varies for existent and non-existent users

   While this is not problem of pam, pam_ssh is affected.
   Also admit this is a very low security issue (affecting
   special configurations), but in any case the password
   prompt should be always the same. Successfully reproduced.

Thanks, Jan.
