Sorry yeah I should have been more clear. This goes for all the major secondary sources (Debian, SUSE, etc.). >> I will no longer be issuing CVE's for issues brought up through >> the Debian bugtracker without an original source to back it up, >> otherwise more mistakes will happen which is not good. > > I don't understand the purpose of excluding an entire project's > sources.

I simply will require an original source, in this case the year is probably wrong. > Is there really a problem at all?

Yeah, and people can post them to the list. As stated before, I assign a lot of CVEs. One minute extra per CVE is about 20 hours a year. It adds up. So from now on I'll be needing original source confirmation in the emails to oss-sec. > Best wishes, Mike > - -- Kurt Seifried Red Hat Security Response Team (SRT) PGP: 0x5E267993 A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.13 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJRNAZRAAoJEBYNRVNeJnmTbvQQALqxYvC4wPlsezpAib1KJN5B /Whn1VfNA63qZ/+RpoVRWRvbx1aC+6hBtdeMyYzNJoq7FGnq33tHuSzW3xW4iQl3 zJjPd3yuxB4Om3arSqNmewW8aKGM0Z3jPP8wQjh7coxKzwGDd1yY/NQojPxZZTKF WTVV6c3JPVeNqZriDem5XXpySCjfufg7CYZzkMrmmsHPWAfpe+X5csa2Ks6P6vzi 5zsrYY4ucWDdyyjJ5uCxzqxyw/MigI8P4Aj1jOgM3VJdwCsj8UWGmLb6InzceBHP 97JgGCu4HlviVdFU7XNiG4/fVy9N6lTq8tE0ypTNWQzBHWVnhFqI4KvJlnJRW9FT IZN35NsyB3jPv3+6X4aZjhtzZ0bkU7MpqStOtHq4JZfLWwnFviiUJRRl/h26YRc/ tOGMlbhEsTpOYrwCBh6MSkmf+eQDgzJZO3kQ8Q9Xa4jkowUc5aFDwUkSELhU6G45 P5ayRml66ylv6leR4qYuaZLktLjc9ytqvfl+Cj39sspKyKBTO1Fhtt6bjy/EYEc4 8TTPvtuLT900djCnzu3uDurlPBnPGAbP22DBAn+6ElxFQdI3X6Nx/XAOJt5X7ULW qW2ZfXfPy+wP4WafT9G3P3FGRsz+4mdIMZWWtndGYskzCvrDHxnYUycKJofT2eUV kMnABc62ZstYHtE5dfez =trUJ -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
