MITRE has been working on this for a few days but unfortunately hasn't received a definitive reply about the gksu CVE ID. For now, all we can say is that CVE-2014-2943 is currently a correct CVE ID for a Cobham Aviator satellite terminal issue. The correct CVE ID for the gksu issue is not CVE-2014-2943. We hope to resolve this by early next week. - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJUEz5FAAoJEKllVAevmvmsB60IAKFE/iYOcjmhuE42YPEsC+1E Dq+ws8Epwurvn/v34WjpvxjZbdX5HApN8JBTaaM8u3n3cZXQFrAiWVc+NNCGVcFt uvQb/jx2SbsVrpaxvMebCws1CXm+LzNMRmPzhKWBl2NRWARb1OU0nwYc9NEIrFN5 4Juj0MiQ8tFSqZ0FREjJZ+k34lNkDW0+MtEAWD2qpAeLWYmcbemBLol5SnIb7B3k 9vAD56hcWBIATqh0KoihRLOg4phmnAyCrlB3mmRaUUzhpuz9XdSQVCgnrsHSCZgm qROKGv2UzrEZXfCF+KFnmji6dfNyBe12b/3GINftVopNlPl/Wiiypccr/jTZHLk= =9w8L -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
