[PROPOSAL] Cluster MS-99 - 7 legacy candidates



The following cluster contains 7 legacy candidates, all of which are
associated with Microsoft advisories that were published in 1999.
With this cluster, we now have candidates (or entries) for all issues
described in Microsoft advisories from that year.

All candidates have a "priority 1."  I encourage the Board to vote on
these rapidly, within the minimum 2-week time frame before they are
moved to Interim Decision.  The schedule for this cluster is:

  Scheduled Interim Decision: May 30
  Scheduled Final Decision: June 5

Other legacy candidates related to 1999 advisories will be posted next
week.

Summary of votes to use (in ascending order of "severity")
----------------------------------------------------------

ACCEPT - voter accepts the candidate as proposed
NOOP - voter has no opinion on the candidate
MODIFY - voter wants to change some MINOR detail (e.g. reference/description)
REVIEWING - voter is reviewing/researching the candidate, or needs more info
RECAST - candidate must be significantly modified, e.g. split or merged
REJECT - candidate is "not a vulnerability", or a duplicate, etc.

1) Please write your vote on the line that starts with "VOTE: ".  If
   you want to add comments or details, add them to lines after the
   VOTE: line.

2) If you see any missing references, please mention them so that they
   can be included.  References help greatly during mapping.

3) Note that a "MODIFY" is treated as an "ACCEPT" when counting votes.
   So if you don't have sufficient information for a candidate but you
   don't want to NOOP, use a REVIEWING.
