Please remember that many subscribers to this list are not part of your project or company. As such, please clearly identify the product in the subject line. Just including a sub-component or vulnerable functions and/or a CVE does not tell us what software the mail is about. This has gotten out of hand and in at least one case in the past few days, the entire mail never clearly stated the software that was vulnerable. Sure, most of us know the poster and it followed other advisories, but to newcomers or anyone reaching that post via a Google search it is not very friendly. Thanks, jericho / OSVDB.org
