Based on discussions I'm giving them both CVE ids. Issue #1 Vino incorrectly tells users their desktop is only reachable over the local network. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=596190 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vino/+bug/344489 Use CVE-2011-1164 Issue #2 Vino can open ports via uPnP without alerting the user. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=678846 Use CVE-2011-1165 Thanks. -- JB
