MODIFY-01 cluster: 25 CERT candidates moved to MODIFICATION phase




All:

The following 25 candidates have been moved to the MODIFICATION phase.
They represent the bulk of the CERT cluster that I haven't made a
Final Decision on yet.  I have defined a MODIFY-01 cluster to hold
these vulnerabilities.

I expect to move these candidates to Interim Decision by Friday June
25, barring any issues raised by the Editorial Board; so I expect to
make a Final Decision on these by 6/30.

1) I have changed the candidates slightly to reflect board members'
comments.  These changes are explicitly noted in the candidate list.

2) Editorial Board members need to re-vote for these candidates.  In
the next email, I will list people's votes for the original
candidates.

3) I've changed the format of the candidate list slightly.  It
includes the dates of each phase for the candidate, and a specific
line for you to fill in your vote.  Please list your vote on the VOTE:
line after each candidate, and reply with the full text.  I know this
takes up bytes, but I've been tallying votes manually and I'm getting
concerned about making some mistakes.  I hope to refine this process
as time goes on.

4) Most of the modifications involve adding references to the X-Force
database; some involve minor changes to the description text.


Thanks,
- Steve
