Subject: CVE request for planet

A second vulnerability was found by Secunia in planet, that differs from
CVE-2009-2937.  Details are available here:

There is a bit of confusion surrounding the two issues, but it seems as
though they are, in fact, two separate issues.  The first
(CVE-2009-2937) deals with insufficient escaping of input feeds, while
the second deals with some CDATA filtering problems as well.

Steve, does this warrant a second CVE or should the CDATA filtering fall
under CVE-2009-2937 as well?
