In fact, commits 5d26a105b5a7 and > 4943ba16bbc2 should have been a single one ... Thanks for the additional clarification. However, we're planning to keep the distinct IDs of CVE-2013-7421 and CVE-2014-9644. We don't combine issues based only on finding that they affect the same module and have the same impact, and were fixed at roughly the same time. The 4943ba16bbc2db05115707b3ff7b4874e9e3c560 example of loading 'vfat(blowfish)' is new attack information that wasn't obvious, and didn't become public until 20 months later. (In this type of situation, we would prefer two CVE IDs even if everything had been fixed in a single commit. Admittedly, if there were a single commit, and no other information were posted, it might have been much harder to notice that there were two discoveries. So, there might have been the less preferable outcome of one CVE ID.) - -- 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) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJUw+KDAAoJEKllVAevmvms5nYH/j0K5Sd3M4yJWDxB2/kpF00A cXJU3o+Mm8l/AjJEd3blJ4IKG4FavAKN3YRjxPfbhIj34p8SaYCdMmDVylXftvsi 3SiU9v7/k1q6U3JOh/jVj5gx+LsBlKmriL6TjqiBbGwjz3natEtXauRJ3/mIThxS rDHSfMr8zDGDrjUB9zIy50C2eQcVuDkc8YD1xM5vwUm9cL2xbYS8dY15kEY8c/fB J98yDVgGMdtZhr189yYnsRx6Cps/40wgpQ8D3/SBdUfN6nbv0M5Ao8X067y2L86y VbpS29B4Q4X9PR1oTC8ZVR3FvykTjjJvz0BCMN9P2lFWADquRkMjQkulwOO9tjQ= =/VtB -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
