   Note that this candidate was inadvertently used in Microsoft bulletin
   MS01-044, for an unrelated vulnerability.  The ScreamingMedia
   SITEware problem is the correct vulnerability for
   CVE-2001-0555.  A different candidate will be used for the problem
   described in the Microsoft bulletin.
