Subject: Cve issue discussion


I am curious about issuing CVEs.

I can see that a "NULL pointer dereference" or a bug where the exploit has not been verified also get a CVE.

heap-overflows may or may not be exploitable.

It takes a lot of time to analyze the exploit and create the exploit code.

Is it right to be assigned a CVE only if it is exploitable?

Or do you think all bugs need to get a CVE?





[1] - NULL pointer dereference
[2] - memory allocation failure
