INTERIM DECISION: ACCEPT 16 candidates from MODIFY-01 cluster




All:

I have made an Interim Decision to ACCEPT the following 16 candidates
from the MODIFY-01 cluster.  I made some extremely small modifications
to some descriptions, as noted.

I will make a Final Decision on these candidates on this Friday, July
2nd, unless there is objection.  Members who have already voted on
these clusters need not respond unless they wish to change their
votes.

Note that there are still 9 active candidates from MODIFY-01 that
remain in the Modification phase: CAN-1999-0004, CAN-1999-0018,
CAN-1999-0035, CAN-1999-0046, CAN-1999-0078, CAN-1999-0099,
CAN-1999-0128, CAN-1999-0132, and CAN-1999-0208.  Most of these
candidates are affected by the current discussion on "Same Attack"
versus "Same Codebase" content decisions, since each vulnerability
occurs on a range of OSes or applications.
