 Williams> Frech - this is not a dupe of CVE-2000-0083.
 Christey> While this advisory is vaguely worded, the fact that HP did an
   advisory for the other asecure problem (now CVE-2000-0083)
   indicates at the very least that this problem occurs in
   a different version than CVE-2000-0083, so CD:SF-LOC

   and "11.X" are affected, so who knows what versions they
   *really* mean?
