Or did I misread it (this is entirely possible =). No, my fault, sorry about that - I misread it. No new CVE needed. Using Agostino's original request, Item 1 from SECUNIA:47494 is the same as Wireshark item 2 (wnpa-sec-2012-02.html) as listed later in Agostino's request, to which you had already assigned CVE-2012-0042. I originally read this like there were separate requests, and I missed that there were overlapping references that talked about the same issue. - Steve
