Subject: Firefox: CVE-2011-3867 a dupe of CVE-2011-2998

went live it initially listed "CVE-2011-XXXX" as the CVE ID. However,
since it was obvious that CVE-2011-2998 was missing in the block of
Mozilla IDs I asked the Mozilla security group for confirmation if
MFSA 2011-37 is in fact CVE-2011-2998, which they confirmed  and 
fixed on the website later the day.

MITRE then seems to have assigned CVE-2011-3867 to this issue:, which
links to the MFSA page, which itself mentions CVE-2011-2998.

Beside Debian CVE-2011-2998 was also used by Red Hat: and since it's also 
mentioned on the Mozilla page my recommendation would be to reject 
CVE-2011-3867, before it gets used more widely.
