Please use CVE-2012-2743 for this issue. Assigned 2012 CVE's as the first clear mention of the issues is in the codepoet.no ticket. The Blog entry for 2010 mentions the issue indirectly so I'm going with the more concrete mention. > Upstream ticket:  > http://oss.codepoet.no/revelation/issue/61/file-format-magic-string-version-mismatch > > > > Further references:  > https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421571  > http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2012-June/168607.html > >  > http://knoxin.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/revelation-password-manager-considered.html > >  > http://westhoffswelt.de/blog/0046_from_revelation_security_to_android_password_managers.html > > > > Could you allocate two CVE ids for these?
