Essentially we'd be saying "SSLv2 is so bad, that supporting/enabling it by default in a crypto library is CVE worthy" (essentially under the CVE assignment for "product makes a security claim that it fails to do properly"). -- Kurt Seifried -- Red Hat -- Product Security -- Cloud PGP A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 Red Hat Product Security contact: secalert@...hat.com
