Subject: CVE-request: WordPress 3.1.1

If I am correct these WordPress issues are missing CVEs. I checked from MITREs CVE-list and tried Google. Needs two 2011 CVE.

1) Certain unspecified input is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) The "make_clickable()" function in wp-includes/formatting.php does not properly check the URL length in comments before passing it to the PCRE library, which can be exploited to cause a crash.

I even contacted WordPress administrators and asked if this does have CVE, but they haven't replied for some reason.
