Flaw details and/or patch link (I'm assuming this got corrected upstream too). It's not uncommon for vendors fixing a vendor-specific issue to send a heads-up here and to upstream rather than letting everyone else using affected component to struggle trying to find any details. In this case, you don't even seem to know if it actually was vendor specific. Can Oracle ensure that actionable details are provided for any Oracle assigned CVEs for open-source components? Regardless of who the upstream is. MySQL is a good example - there were previous requests to provide at least minimal details to unambiguously map assigned CVEs to specific issues, all refused or ignored. This is a good place to share such information. -- Tomas Hoger / Red Hat Security Response Team
