First candidate cluster for validation: CERT




Below is the first candidate cluster, named CERT.  It is a Low
controversy cluster with 60 vulnerabilities.  It includes many of the
vulnerabilities reported in CERT advisories in the past few years.
(Other CERT-reported vulnerabilities appear in later clusters).

Since these vulnerabilities are well-known and well-verified, I don't
expect there to be much debate.  So let's try and get them reviewed by
next Monday, June 14th.  As a reminder, the review process was
discussed in a previous email.

Validate away!  I will propose another cluster this Wednesday or
Thursday.
