One common entry is: ** RESERVED ** This candidate has been reserved by an organization or individual that will use it when announcing a new security problem. When the candidate has been publicized, the details for this candidate will be provided. This means that the entry number has been reserved by Mitre for an issue or a CNA has reserved the number. So in the case where a CNA requests a block of CVE numbers in advance (e.g. Red Hat currently requests CVEs in blocks of 500) the CVE number will be marked as reserved even though the CVE itself may not be assigned by the CNA for some time. Until The CVE is assigned AND Mitre is made aware of it (e.g. the embargo passes and the issue is made public) AND Mitre has researched the issue and written a description of it entries will show up as "** RESERVED **". Mitre: can we consider changing the text to be more explanatory, I get requests for this constantly (people seem t think I run the database or something ;). - -- 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) iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJSAwCdAAoJEBYNRVNeJnmTdgIP/izRNpjULBIuwKrGmDbEwsHy n2vMxgu/kgtb82QFThKdnj2f8xgv76LjZPXBUkzkY1JkyjWHt45m4J1dstX5qTac FPtrSU/vpABzH+icg2qyeA35sa/9TMkXEM81UTRqXisq3Ex6RPhYu1/UGBoPA1jq FAXB0LdWN/QJnw8A+Ii5ll+jdKB8WaHHEaUcIUBQzMNwLdoIlCUlp66KI/7pxDDR 47LJx299/ZzqPAgbaWI02Is0slEV9rpJKUojrqq+MRBOz4PAGN+CJ1wjTFRcjqmU 1/T8X6PtNsUqbOCiIvORb0H+b3MTmq9y5d6jUIPyc4SKWNmIL4XWaUie4+hTkmSX SIa3AwW/J8b8VoccgdPmJwzwNrAWiVdpr3IJAe6JrCC+75+ZsL5XCcOUXdzANnN9 E072gW3rz1nu65Q0qaGhk6QLfUFbYIOec8o6XjmzFnOKPosbkB7nseV5c5n59cj8 OBZ5lpWqErQ2H1oekJpzvqgddS6epXTU1fzzHVXMHWVtY9g1SrLihOapbb3r10NB +MIbqYvHNTDo3nX+0zc7MfAPbFxwf2VhqW3Zn8Yvj859DHGzgWz2PB9r9M6V1be1 FdhnM7XmuV8MQ8T2eTnrOxvISroqhnN1dBd9476Fx34ZYOy8S5opzspwuudwUUZ+ bR/LbIzhq9TnZs6qWTxr =Jov8 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
