INTERIM DECISION: ACCEPT 9 VEN-HP candidates (Final 7/12)



I have made an Interim Decision to ACCEPT 9 of the candidates from
this cluster.  A Final Decision is scheduled for July 12.

Many of these candidates had only 2 registered opinions, and 2 NOOPs.

CAN-1999-0326 is an example of something Russ Cooper said in a recent
email about vendors who don't provide sufficient details to explain
the nature of a vulnerability.  Neither the X-Force database nor the
CIAC advisory are able to shed any light on the problem either,
although CIAC says that "Exploit information involving this
vulnerability has been made publicly available."

- Steve
