Subject: CVE request (maybe): magento before

Hi, changelog lists this:
"Fixed: Security vulnerability in Zend_XmlRpc - "

I don't know if we consider bundled libs issues as extra CVE. The
original one is CVE-2012-3363.

Also, Magento has this:
"Fixed: Several potential security vulnerabilities"

Yeah, I like it if vendors are so verbose about their
vulnerabilities... And here are some people defending the "security by
obscurity standpoint of magento:

(I seriosly consider this is an issue that should be highlighted more -
we recently had piwik devs arguing in a similar way for obsurity - free
software doesn't protect you from dumb developers thinking that
obscurity may be a good idea)
